Economist tech predictions…

They call them fearless – I call them narrowly defined. But, still interesting…

    1. Surfing will slow:  PEERING into Tech.view’s crystal ball, the one thing we can predict with at least some certainty is that 2008 will be the year we stop taking access to the internet for granted. The internet is not about to grind to a halt, but as more and more users clamber aboard to download music, video clips and games while communicating incessantly by e-mail, chat and instant messaging, the information superhighway sometimes crawls with bumper-to-bumper traffic…
    2. Surfing will detach: Google, mobile, blah, blah, blah…
    3. Surfing—and everything else computer-related—will open. Rejoice: the embrace of “openness” by firms that have grown fat on closed, proprietary technology is something we’ll see more of in 2008. Verizon is not the only one to cry uncle and reluctantly accept the inevitable.
