100 things to watch, 2011

leave a comment »

Some of trend-spotting company JWT’s 100 things to watch in 2011: logging off; in-the-flesh; fetishising physical objects once considered humdrum; backing away from radical transparency; Brazil; digital etiquette (don’t text during sex, &tc); 3D printing; automatic check-ins in shops and institutions; borrowing e-books; childrens e-books; entrepreneurial journalism; electronic profiling using ‘taste graphs’; long-form content; mobile device-enabled microbusiness; digital storytelling; hyperlinking the physical world to the web using smartphones, bar codes and QR codes; self-powered devices; intelligent infrastructure; social networking surveillance; transmedia (extending narratives across media platforms); geo-tagging; live-streaming from YouTube; and toilet paper without the tube.

100 things to watch in 2011.

Not appearing in that list (perhaps due to the proclivities of JWT’s clientele, perhaps because they aren’t trends)  include: changes to intellectual property law; open access; open source; online information filtering practices (relates to the ‘ignorance is bliss’ trend); online activism.
