Future web trends

Here’s the presentation I did at a recent iCommons Innovations Series talk with Mr Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales, a while back. Honoured to be in such company. I did an adapted version of it again at the recent “Publish Online” conference in Cape Town. The presentation now has a slightly less pretentious title: changed it from “Future of the web” to “Future web trends”. It’s got some crazy, out there predictions (“Decline of nation states”) and some obvious predictions (Fast, ubiquitous, always-on internet) — some of my own and some I’ve got from other sites, including Read Write Web and one of my favourite books, Netocracy.
