After the consumer trends a few days ago, here comes Pete Cashmore (founder of Mashable.com and definitely a guy who knows what he’s talking about) and presents his view of the top trends in the web for 2010:
- Real time web: the web experience (consumption & production) will become more and more instant
- Localization: Information in the web will be linked to local data and thereby open a whole new level for the internet
- Augmented reality: a layer between the real and the digital world will become platform for untold experiences
- Content curation: Be it your social graph or professional curators, filtering information is and becomes more and more crucial
- Cloud computing: data and even applications won’t stay on your computer much longer
- Internet TV & movies: this area of entertainment will more and more migrate to the web
- Convergence: why carry more than one device with you?
- Social gaming
- Mobile payments: as everything becomes digital and real time a proper solution for payments on the go will break through
- Fame abundance & privacy scarcity: What you wanna do when they come for you?
