I find it interesting that at the present time, the majority answer is 1984. Is the 1984 significance based on the Orwell book? Are respondents looking forward to 2011 to see if time will dispel another author's imagined future? If so, I would expect that would have happened in 2010 - I don't recall a massive space odyssey occurring last year...

Personally, I'm starting a new job in 2011, so chose 'the year I entered college' as akin to such an event. Unfortunately, the new job has absolutely nothing to do with Perl (I almost declined due to that fact, but money talks). Sigh.

    Are respondents looking forward to 2011 to see if time will dispel another author's imagined future? Well in that case I'm looking forward to 2015 as according to "Back to the Future" we'll be driving flying cars and playing on hover-boards.

    Well, Pete, I picked 1984 because that's when I graduated from High School, not because of the book. That said, any time a dystopian novel is disproven, it's a good thing.
      So 2011 naturally would be your 27th High School reunion, which is obviously relevant since it's three cubed!

      I'm way off-base here, aren't I? ;)

    For me, it's the year Apple introduced the Macintosh.
