Tech Trends for 2008 from Read/Write/Web


This slide presentation from Read / Write / Web forecasts as this year’s major trends (in my paraphrasing):
– collaboration,
– production (ie. reading AND writing via social web applications),
– the core role of APIs in facilitating production of new content,
– microformats to facilitate reuse and repurposing of existing data,
– openness (open source, open content, open data, open science, open … ),
– mashups & tools to create them,
– mobile (web, tools, tech, data),
– semantic web applications, and
– recommendation engines.
