I don't think they realised how drastically things were going to change for the future, but the ideas they did come up with were probably outrageous for them and would certainly be crazy for 2009.

Artist Brian Dettmer seals, then cuts into older dictionaries, encyclopedias, textbooks, science and engineering books etc, exposing select images and text to create intricate three-dimensional derivative works that reveal new or alternative interpretations of the books. The final result is a fascinating three dimensional glimpse into, not only the book it's carved out but also the whole process of print. More of his work can be found on his blog here.
Now that satellite imagery has been around in the public domain for a while it is possible to create time-lapse videos to reveal the shocking truth about how we effect the earth as humans.

To see more have a look at Wired magazine's article.
