    What professions/areas of expertise do you think are soon to be eliminated by advancing technology?
    Language. Not so much eliminated as changed. I think we will revert to using glyphs again as table/pad use increases.

    What's the biggest goal you want to accomplish this year?

    Your question assumes that it has been reached. (I don't believe it has.)

    Warning: the following question may require thought! (Though I suspect someone will try to give a hand-waving answer anyways.)

    Do you think that e-readers will make printed books completely obsolete? If so, do you think that printed books will be made obsolete in your lifetime?

    No I don't think books will become completely obsolete. Certain books are best consulted when in the physical format.

    Have you ever written fanfiction?

    Yes, I would never dare posting it anywhere though.

    Out of curiosity, do you have any examples to go with your previous answer?

    Reference books in general. I find it easier to flip around the book. Searching "blindly" in the ebook file isn't very efficient, I find. It could also just be me though.

    How about you? What do you think?

    Unfortunately, I believe that printed text will eventually follow the same road as the cassette tape and floppy disk.

    When day-dreaming, does your mind play you a story with a plot, or just a series of random scenes?

    I'm not sure. Even if it's random at first sight, there's usually a connection somewhere. Perhaps I find the connection after the fact?

    What's your first thought when you hear or see a train passing by?

    Fight or flight?
