6 Trends That Change Everything

I've been speaking about the combinatorial power of 6 massive trends, rapidly becoming mainstream, which are reinforcing each other and reshaping every aspect of the internet.

1. Vertical.

2. Local.

3. Social.

4. Accountable.

5. Mobile.

6. Cloud.

As they interact, these are complete game changers-- I will post about each. I believe we are now experiencing the third era of the internet: the platform era (which follows the portal era and the search era).

In this platform era, the combinatorial power of these trends rule (such as social meets mobile meets vertical meets smbs).

(A seventh massive trend,Video Convergence is its own game changer-- that's for a later series.)
