Washington 2025--A History

This week's Washington Post Magazine features my look at what this region might look like in 2025, not so terribly far off, yet every bit as distant as a time when the web, email and cellphones were virtually unknown, the only pro sports team that played in the District was the Redskins, and the news was delivered by Rather, Brokaw and Jennings.

The online version of the Washington 2025 piece includes audio clips from the roundtables we conducted with experts in everything from national security to family structure, as well as a slideshow of the artist Peter Bollinger's depictions of Washington scenes from 2025.

I'll be here on the big web site Monday at noon to discuss the scenarios, your projections for our future, and your responses to this package.
