A view of the future from 2009

grading predictions.pngI was talking with someone today about innovation application and they showed me a video HP put together back in 2009 on Technology Trends. It was pretty well done and although some of it is a bit dated, much of it is as relevant today as it was 5 years ago.


The three trends it focused on were:

  • Explosive population growth
  • Unprecedented economic development
  • Exponential technology advancement


Population growth predictions have shifted a bit since 2009. We’ve been in a bit of a global economic stall since then as well. It still does make an interesting view of trends from the end of the previous decade.


It can be entertaining to look back at what we thought the world would be like in the coming years -- here were my predictions from 2008 looking at 2009. Some of them look more accurate today then they did in 2009!??
