From observer in the forums:
Just for fun , I made this small timeline list of what's going to happen this year. I will list some sources for the info in the next post.Later in the forum he posts references to all of these items. I doubt the SPDC predictions, specifically the JREF prize, will occur before "Validation Day" happens. Still, it's interesting to see all Steorn's pronouncements appear in one timeline.
