Time to share my predictions for 2005


Time to share my predictions for 2005...

  1. allofmp3.com gets bigger (and adds an RSS feed)
  2. Podcasting buzzes to video content
  3. Bill Gates doesn't launch his blog (I hope I'm wrong)
  4. My wife starts her first blog (on http://spaces.msn.com, primarily for distributing photos)
  5. RSS not 'ubiquitous' yet, but makes it into the Interactive Advertising Bureau's (IAB) Ad Campaign Measurement and Audit Guidelines
  6. In-Flight broadband wi-fi access offered by one major airline - (Update - James Governor kindly points out SAS has already done this...doh!)
  7. Email spam becomes a non-issue for end-users, but Mobile & Comment spamming gets worse
  8. Online extortion grows
  9. The 'Browser Wars' are back
  10. I don't get a parking ticket in London

  1. SAS already offers the wi-fi – guess which airlines is going to start getting custom from this year…

    why doesnt your wife use flickr? way better for that purpose.

    you will get a parking ticket in london unless you get rid of the car.

    Thanks James…

    Re: inflight broadband….have updated, thanks.

    Re: Flickr – yes, nice service…but she already has a Hotmail account, so can sign up to Spaces without creating another account to manage. Also, from her prespective, Spaces has the added bonus of being good-for-newbs-blogware.

    Re: parking ticket. Yep, I’m getting rid of the car.

    Alex.
