Looking Back at Techcrunch's 2010 tech predictions

Let's look back at some predictions for this past year and how good or bad they were-
  1. The Tablet - definitely, iPads are the rage and with others making the moves in the last year, they are the netbooks for the next year.
  2. Geo: Sadly, not as much as you might want to think. Techcrunch REALLY pushed this as far back as 2009 and it is still not as prevalent as folks who use it think it is versus those that don't.
  3. Realtime Search- There is real-time searching? Yes, but do people really care?
  4. Chrome OS It only took another year and they are finally doing it. Try again in 2011.
  5. HTML5 Yes, but again- another slow burn. Seems to be a theme?Y
  6. Mobile Video- Seriously?
  7. Augmented Reality- Huh?
  8. Mobile Transactions - Wha?
  9. Android- most definitely. This past year and in the last few months saw a huge uptick. 2011 could be a huge year for Google powered mobiles, especially with the announcements around Google OS.
  10. Social CRM- Not any bigger than it was? Is it?
Come back tomorrow, we'll look back at another list!

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
