In SciFi

Near futures: You can reasonably expect to live through them. Next 30 years till 2050[1]. Becoming impossible to write as reality keeps overtaking the story.

Medium futures: You expect your kids to live through them. 30-60 years. The second half of this century looks ... interesting. LtoG non-linearity.

Long futures: 22nd Century onwards. All bets are off because there's a singularity between here and there.

[1]2050. 32 years and counting. Remember 1986?
