From 1984, four predictions about the future (three of them correct): At the first TED conference, gave a 2-hour talk that, with surprising accuracy, predicted what would happen with CD-ROMs, web interfaces, service kiosks, the touchscreen interface and his own One Laptop Per Child project.
Here is a 25-minute excerpt of that talk. (TED plans to release the full footage later, but it needs to be restored in places [source]).
