Comments on Gartner's Predictions

Gartner's 2007 Predictions

"Blogging and community contributors will peak in the first half of 2007. Given the trend in the average life span of a blogger and the current growth rate of blogs, there are already more than 200 million ex-bloggers. Consequently, the peak number of bloggers will be around 100 million at some point in the first half of 2007."

Good point. This further supports my theory that we're in for another radical direction change. I was going with my gut but now I see some kind of expert concurs. Yikes.

I do think that the number of blogs used as information delivery by corporations and other organizations will increase. Individuals (like me) will decrease.

"Vista will be the last major release of Microsoft Windows. The next generation of operating environments will be more modular and will be updated incrementally. The era of monolithic deployments of software releases is nearing an end. Microsoft will be a visible player in this movement, and the result will be more-flexible updates to Windows and a new focus on quality overall"

And high time, too. It's time for a new way of looking at operating systems.
