Predictions for the next 10 years


These are my predictions of things that will happen within the next 10 years.  

  • Facebook (as we know it) will be the next Myspace (and not in a good way)
  • Bing will do to Google what Google did to Alta Vista in late 90's  (fitting that Bing, Yahoo! and Alta Vista are all sort of one big family)
  • Google will pivot and innovate in a way that we nor Bing saw coming
  • The Apple we know will fall apart in a Yahoo! style crisis.  Not knowing quite how they got where they are or where to go next.
  • Amazon will take over the "ownership" level of the web by supporting the most major sites and APIs in the cloud.
