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!

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

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
