If they are anything like my company workshops, it's catchphrases related to company values the first half of the day, followed by golfing the second half. No envelopes are harmed in our workshops.

I was mostly speaking in reference to the Exon graph, which contained no timeline at all, yet it's assumed the x-axis represented time.

Your graph confused me since it shows everything in decline prior to 2030 (though it doesn't show how much prior). We're a decade out with little/no decline yet.

I thought population predictions generally has us peaking in 100 years? I've assumed it will happen towards the end of my lifetime, or about 2065. I'm guessing VR porn, decreasing religious fundamentalism, and general hassle of raising children will be the driving force behind a dwindling population, along with the already known factors such as women entering the workforce, and access to contraception.
