06 Jan 10 Tech Trends From the Decade That Was … and What Will Be
Steve Case, BlogRevolution.com –
As we kick off 2020 — both a new year, and a new decade — it makes sense to take a step back, reflect on what’s happened, and identify some of the trends worth keeping an eye on.
I am reminded of how much has changed in the last ten years. In 2010, we were first hearing about the iPad, Facebook had just turned cash flow positive, and most people were celebrating (rather than criticizing) the growth of Silicon Valley and what was starting to be known as Big Tech. Over the last decade, there have been many innovations that have changed our lives by addressing long-standing pain points in age-old industries like transportation and financial services, and in so doing, raised complicated questions for policymakers and society.
Although we’ve come a long way, the next decade will likely bring about even more transformative change. Some of the ideas I outlined nearly four years ago when I wrote the book The Third Wave are well underway, and others are just starting to pick up steam.
This week, I’ll plan to share — in no particular order — two tech trends each day that I am keeping an eye on as we enter this next decade. We’ll kick it off with sectors many of us may be thinking about as we contemplate New Year’s resolutions: health, wellness, and diet.
