There are many ways to think about the future of computing, but to do so successfully requires looking at previous experience and predictions. The author's focus here is on computing rather than computers, though the increasing power of the latter facilitates the former. For example, the author have nothing to say about the future of multicore or parallel computing, except that beyond the Internet, the predictions for this technology have been rather optimistic for the past 30 years. This paper is all about how the author argue for the topics of future not often addressed. Some of these topics are: the authors envisioned computing application; the fall of the computing politburo; emergent collectives; everyone is a service; coordinating services; and the plenty of room for research.
