December is both a look back and a look ahead– a couple that struck me from Barry Parr:
“Demand from high-volume bloggers will lead to the development of simpler, standards-based open-source content management software. This will increase pressure on existing CMS vendors and integrator to justify their cost and complexity. Most will not survive this challenge.
“Internet advertising will be white-hot, but most of the revenues will go to a handful of sites. This will give Time Warner the opportunity to spin off AOL. They should seize it.
“RSS will be used to syndicate new kinds of information and RSS readers will begin to appear in mobile devices.”
I don’t agree with all Barry’s predictions–and don’t share his knowledge or experience around IT–but there are some cool observations here.
