I got midway through my predictions post, when I decided that I might like some help.
So, taking a page out of Rick’s book, let’s see how smart you are. Sound off in the comments with your predictions for 2009.
I don’t think there needs to be a focus on any particular area for your predictions, but I doubt you’ll get much interest or discussion if you predict the European Parliament elections for 2009 or the American Idol winner for the upcoming season.
Based on the content we usually produce here, you could target your visions at the ‘Lab, Oracle (unless you’re an employee, natch), technology in general, Open Source, development, startups, Twitter, Facebook, social networks, micro-blogging, etc.
Everyone has an opinion, so this is your chance to put a stake in the ground now, rather than tell us later you knew X would acquire Facebook in 2009.
What’s the harm anyway? No one really remembers all the wrong predictions you made, just the right ones.
I’ll assume your wisdom is provided under Creative Commons, so don’t worry, I won’t copy your thoughts without attribution. Expect my predictions by tomorrow; I just need another day to mull over my many opinions.
Have fun with this. I doubt any of us really care about being right or wrong, just sharing opinions.
Maybe Anthony, Rich and Paul will chime in with their thoughts too.
