Early forecast of Singularity

In reading about the Singularity, I found a magazine article which
casually mentioned that the historian Henry Brooks Adams (1838-1918)
was interested in technology and forecast that humanity would undergo
a "Phase Change" by 2025. This would be fantastic at a time when
most people in the world (and many in America) had never seen an
automobile or airplane (never mind a radio).
Anyone have more information on this?
