Technology Predictions For 2012

from the going-out-on-a-limb dept

Well, December has started, and that means it’s time for all sorts of useless predictions. Most of those will be predictions for 2003, so I’ll probably ignore most of them (though, a few of the more interesting ones may find their way into posts). However, Mike Langberg is going a bit more long term (following on his review last week of his predictions from a decade ago) and is predicting technology trends for 2013. Mostly he’s just extrapolating a few of the bigger trends of today (more devices getting connected to the internet, instant messaging, and TiVo type trends…) and pushing them forward – but it’s still fun to read predictions for ten years from now.

Aging of the Computer Industry

Not to mention, we’ll see more grey haired geezers running IT companies. It’s not a new industry anymore. New ideas will go through many committees and tests, with their decades of accumulated wisdom, before being put to market. Computers will have yearly models, $400 environmental impact fees, and required annual inspections. People will complain about how computers are becoming a requirement for living, that computers are ruining the environment/culture/whatever.
