Top business-strategist Michael Wolf gave a presentation on the future of tech and media from 2016 to 2020 in the Wall Street Journal last October. I've been covering technology predictions in several articles and although there are some corrections in the stock market at the moment, there is nothing really holding the tech sector back. But, don't take my word for it, read Wolf's presentation on how consumer tech and media staged to grow by 535 Billion over the next 4 years.

If you're read tech news whether it is to keep up or researching new companies, Tech Crunch is a valuable resource. On TC each article about a company has in-depth information on the right side column. It links over to Crunch Base just click on the company title and you'll open up a whole chronological history of the founders, funding they may have received, investors, acquisitions and changes within the organization.

While searching for domain technology news, I had the pleasure of stumbling upon another great technology site for tech startups that is a start up. Edward Domain is the founder and CEO of Techli.com He is a writer, U.S. Army veteran, serial entrepreneur and chronic early adopter. Having worked for startups in Silicon Valley and Chicago, Edward founded, grew and successfully exited his own previous startup and loves telling the tales of innovators everywhere. Based out of St. Louis, Techli.com also has a show on PBS that covers innovators in a candid business casual format that yields a closer personal experience of the entrepreneurs behind the scenes while delivering the synergy.
Techli.com has a nice layout and I found several several article worth reading, it's bookmark worthy and on my reading list. I'd like to see this level of ground floor reporting for innovative technology roll out to all major cities around the world.
I've been digging into futuristic technology and uncovered an article by Mike Edelhart on Yahoo/Tech news entitled, 9 Technologies That Will Soon Be Inside You. It's interesting news and there just might be some up and coming products to invest in.
I have to admit some of these tech products freak me out. These aren't ideas, they're working prototypes and the concepts, along with the business models, makes sense for each. It's easy to be comfortable with these, we already have several medical implants.
Here's the list: implantable smartphones, healing chips, cyber pills, implantable birth control, smart tattoos, brain-computer interface, meltable bio-batteries, smart dust and the verified self. Is this the biblical mark of the beast? Read the full article with the slide show here.
The previous posts on business trends have gathered a little more interest, so in doing more research I found the following treasure trove on tech trends at Deloitte University Press. Deloitte's articles through and complete with graphs to supplement the projections. The growth forecasts coincide with other news on technology predictions and when you read over the article you'll see how well laid out this presentation is. My hat is off to Deloitte, Bill Briggs, Mariahna Moore and the cast of thousands that compiled this report.
The base concept is Globalization and thinking in terms of a global resources, supply chain management and emerging markets that are evolving with the technology. Right now we are at a tipping point with the growth of Asian and India's markets set to explode. Delivering services to these economies and the challenges that will ensue, can't even fathom the numbers the rewards will bring into the fold. We are just beyond the base of the curve where it's slope is about to go vertical. Artificial intelligence, robotics, wearables, battery tech, culture and class separation. This is by far the best report for all entrepreneurs to read or make a study of. A great series from Deloitte.

As we approach the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2015, and soon to be at the midway point of this decade, I started to look at the predictions and indicators for internet growth by year 2020. Sounds futurist the year 2020 and I think we are starting to enter into the steeper slope of the curve now. In 2010 the internet had 1.7 billion users, today it has a little over 3.1 billion and by 2020 it should be at 5 billion. Check out the stats by country here on InternetWorldStats.com.
Forecasting the future of the internet is that hard to predict just look at what we do and ask yourself are we going to be doing any less of it. Twenty-five great points are listed in this article on Marketing in 2020 by Jeff Beer of FastCompany.com. By looking at marketing we can see the direction society is taking by observing the force trying to get in-front of the mass. Some key points I took away were virtual reality is reality, brand transparency and through technology it's about to get really personal.
Don't forget to consider the growth of the machine usage with the Internet of Things IoT. Both machine and human usage almost double in the next 5 years!
