Negroponte in 1993: "High-definition television is clearly irrelevant."


I’m not making this up. That’s what he wrote. See here. I’m not sure about this because I don’t ever visit actual retail locations other than our own, but I get the sense that many of the so-called “big box” stores now do indeed sell and promote a wide range of high-definition television sets.

If anyone knows of any other really hugely wrong Negroponte predictions, please send them in. I’m told there are dozens and dozens of them.
