I’ve always thought it was interesting how many people predict trends for the comming year (and by trends I mean the big stuff, not the “Orange will be the new Black” crap) but I am yet to find anyone who goes around and checks who was right.
who predicted 2006’s trends:
- Internet Video (Youtube etc) on the evening news
- Climate Change being discussed by non-tree huggers
- Geeks becomming cool
- Citizen Journalism accepted
with that said – i’m going to try and find some trends that i can hang my hat on for 2007 – and yes – they’ll still be here in 12 months time when we see how close i got :)
