What Comes Next?

An interesting presentation caught my eye this week, and it's well worth sharing. It's titled 2015, the web is dead, and if you can ignore a few typos, it's a powerful look at where infotech is headed - decentralized, mobile, integrated. It also ties in with a point that Deloitte analyst Bill Eggers made on Sunday's Gov 2.0 Radio podcast: the pace of growth in technology is simply not slowing, creating a period of rapid social change previously unseen.
Imagine taking out your mobile and pointing it at a building down the block and seeing a tenants' list and key individuals in those organizations with their photos, profiles and recent network updates. Take it further, and you've got facial recognition and mobile Web in your glasses (or even in an implant). If you're in sales, you'll be pulling info from the cloud on people you meet at a conference. If you're a law enforcement officer, you'll be checking warrants from behind the sunglasses.
It's coming, and fast.
