It is customary to have a few predictions as the old year comes to a close. Here are five for five years hence from Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
1.The internet will be dominated by Chinese language content.
2.Today’s teenagers are the model of how the web will work in five years; they jump from one subject to another seamlessly.
3.There will be broadband well above 100MB in performance, and distribution distinctions between TV, radio and the web will disappear.
4.Web content will move more and more towards video.
5.The fundamental shift towards user-generated information means people will listen more to other people than to traditional sources.
Are we prepared?
