Top 10 Technology Trends

Filed under
Sci/Tech

Technology is one of the last frontiers on the information horizon. While technology can help us do our jobs better, faster, and cheaper, some innovation actually proves to be more disruptive in the long run. So what are the top 10 technology trends in 2006?

The SIIA Information Industry Summit in New York, which was held Jan. 31-Feb. 1, put this question to the ultimate test as five industry pundits voiced their opinions of what's hot, what's not, and what we'll be seeing in the months and years to come. The Top 10 Technology Trends, the last session of the summit conference, took a look at the changes we're seeing in the ways information is channeled, directed, processed, and delivered.

Moderator John Patrick (president of Attitude, LLC, author, consultant, and former vice president of Internet technology at IBM Corp.) kept the dialogue on target with his team of panelists, which included Jason Calacanis (blogger and CEO of Weblogs, Inc.), Jeff Pulver (chairman and founder of Pulver.com, Inc.), Chris Shipley (cofounder and editorial director of Guidewire Group, LLC), and Robert Sutor (vice president of standards at IBM Corp.). Here is a roundup of the trends they see coming, with a little of their own opinions added to the mix:
