What are the big trends that you are watching for in 2010?
They can be relevant to technology, business, your own industry, whatever...
What are you watching this year?
1: Ditto the Apple iSlate. It's going to change how you buy and read books (kindle for iPhone is a very good reading experience; for the iSlate is will be awesome), subscribe to media (from NYT to People Magazine), how you connect to people (videoconferencing, the Social world). For starters.
2: US/EU will get what Japan has had for years: the mobile culture. mobile as payment mechanism, offices without landlines, mobile social and all the rest. If that means AT&T needs to be broken up again to get the service people pay for, so be it.
3: The single broadest software market, IMO, will be building out all the apps in all the flavors that a post-industrial, work for yourself and get paid for value global economy. For example, we have 10% unemployment today and a need in the online economy to be able to easily and reliably subcontract work. Someone is going to put that together.
