All in all it's an uncertain future... apocolypse, I'd say not, but a time of revolution, history making, change and potentially a milestone in our history that will affect the planet for thousands of years yet to come?
Perhaps we should pray that aliens invade and sort things out.
I try to look at things in a positive way and assume that we'll wipe ourselves out when we're good and ready and not at a set time defined by which ever deity you may herald. I am not alone in this outlook but there are plenty of people out there who will probably spend the next year forming theories, starting cults and proclaiming prophecies of doom and destruction. I'm looking forward to seeing what emerges over the next months / years.

Unlike during the time of the Mayans there will be a bigger role for digital this time around. At the time of writing, if you search "Apocalypse" on Twitter you mostly get references to Zombie Apocalypse. A subject dear to my heart which I have written about before. I'm starting to wonder if Zombie Apocalypse is as likely as I first thought. Still if you want to watch for the Apocalypse I'd say watch for it trending on Twitter first.
Who will take over after?
