    “Quality of life” is way too vague of a notion for meaningful poll responses.

    RE: redmondjp @ 4 – I expect the vast majority of SFH near the mass transit lines will still be around 15 years from now. Assuming the lines get built.

    If natural disasters doesn’t bury us, then I’m extrememly optimisitic about this area in the future. Seattle is a highly educated, open minded, creative city inspired by awesome views of the mountains and the sound. There are lots of opportunities for various outdoor sports too. Seattle is already a lot better now than 15 years ago with more economic opportunities, transportation options and social activities, and it’ll get better. There were and always be growing pains and adjustments but we’ll be fine.

    As long as WA remains more politically and economically libertarian, we should be fine. It would be nice to see some right to work laws put in place. As long as Boeing, a very large employer, has mandatory unionization, those jobs are in jeopardy of moving elsewhere. Oh, and as long as the income tax is non-existent, small businesses have a future here.

    15 years from now:
    In Seattle, people who used to write code for a living, lacking hunting skills, will be reduced to fighting over roadkill for their subsistence.

    If we do that thing where we project the trend from the past 30 years into the next 15, then life will be a whole lot better for a few, and a little bit worse for many.
