Emerging Social and Technology Trends

10:00 am – Emerging Social and Technology Trends
It took a bit of time for panelists to warm up, but eventually the discussion became more interesting. The problem was that the topic was so general that the ideas given were not very specific. It’s not an easy topic to talk about – very much like predicting the weather next week.
What they said made sense, but was nothing new or ground-shattering to me, such as: companies becoming more ‘open source’ by letting users customise their original products; an increase in the desire for privacy at the same time that technology is enabling people to be more open with their lives. Youths would need something that gives them a sense of belonging. My rating: 3/5. Man of the match: Robert Fabricant of Frog Design.
