Computer Criminals of the Future

Fun found of the excellent site Paleofuture (past future predictions) about computer criminals.

This is from the book School, Work and Play (World of Tomorrow) from 1981:

…there is one kind of crime which may exist in the future – computer crime. Instead of mugging people in the streets or robbing houses, tomorrow’s criminal may try to steal money from banks and other organizations using a computer.

Above you see a detail from the article, this is the future cop, with a future helmet trying to catch the computer criminal. Who probably did it for the lulz.
