Trendwatching.com announces five big trends on their radar for 2007 in the January briefing. “They deal with status, transparency and consumer power, the online revolution, more adventurous consumption, and a shift from consumption to participation.”
Don’t miss #3 – titled Web N+1. Here’s an excerpt on how to handle it.
“So instead of logging off, grab the online bull by the horns and educate yourself about as many WEB N+1s as you can. Quick tip: start by (re)reading everything by Kevin Kelly, who has been correct in predicting the Next Big Online Thing over and over again. When it comes to the shift from offline to online, the predications are out there, we haven’t seen anything yet, and you have no excuse not to know about it.”
Kevin Kelly is the founding executive editor of Wired magazine and a former editor/publisher of the Whole Earth Catalog. The Wikipedia article and the video of his Google TechTalk –titled The Next Fifty Years of Science –are good sources for finding out about him.
