Tuesday, December 19, 2006 Reader Predictions for 2007 Reader Predictions for 2007

"Last week, I gave you my predictions for the coming year and asked you to send along yours. If even a few of these predictions come true, 2007 is going to be a very interesting year, indeed.

From Jonas Lamis, Founder of Singularity University, a community of Technology Futurists:

Virtual Worlds Get Real – Amazon Gets Worried. Second Life becomes a credible next-generation platform for consumer and business commerce. With an immersive collaboration and shopping experience and a strongly appreciating currency, Amazon gets worried.

The rise of the Agent. Next year will see the emergence of personal, cross-platform software services that will act as a proxy for the user. From sorting e-mail to scheduling travel, more administrative tasks will occur in the background. HAL, please book me a round trip ticket to Mars.

IT Management Software is Set Free. Watch out IBM, HP and CA, as a wave of nimble new IT management software vendors offer advertising-supported solutions to better manage the business of IT."
