Information in the information age

The future according to Microsoft

This is an impressive display of future technologies from the folks in Redmond. It’s full of cool stuff like interactive smart boards – across continents, electronic newspapers, “smart cards” – credit, insurance, etc. and a host of other beautifully portrayed ideas.

I fully believe we’ll see all this and more and much of it before 2015. My reasoning is that much of the innovation still to come won’t come from the big companies except through acquisitions perhaps. But it’ll be small, focused, probably dispersed/networked groups that will make the biggest and most unexpected leads forward. Which is why we’ll go farther, faster.

It’s gonna be an amazing ride.
