IT Futurology

Ask yourself this – what will information technology look like in the next 10 years? Not 25 years, not 100, but the near future. There are two schools of thought: you’ll either predict the predictable (new releases of Microsoft Windows, Linux still not achieving the mainstream) or attempt to guess the unknowable (the singularity, ubiquitous computing). Make a list. Check it twice.

And then, gently, tenderly, after considering what it really means, cross off every item that achieves buzz word compliance.
What is left? This is IT Futurology.
