Happy 2010 everyone! Let this year be full of surprises, wishes, hopes, and luck. I myself am going to do a few a changes. I still cannot believe its 2010, and the next decade. In the last decade, we all went through so much. With the dot-com bubble and the real estate crash, many things have been unforeseen. In this decade, I believe we will see an increase in technologies, extremely fast developments that most people are not ready. Especially if you are an engineer or scientist, but in any profession it is going to be harder and harder to keep up due to the sheer amount of people and technologies coming. In this decade we will see more technology than ever invading every form of job. We will see technology everywhere. There is so much demand for this. How many of you just sit there on facebook or twitter for hours a day contacting your friends? Facebook and Twitter do not have to be inside of a computer, it can come to life in a different and powerful way.

With the increase of technology in the 20th century, we will see a transformation in most inanimate objects. This is going to be a very exciting time to live. Information will double every year, which I am hearing about. This is due to the amount of people on the earth, and the increase of technologies such as the personal computer, the internet, and other high tech’s. Information is the knowledge economy’s most precious resource. It will continue to increase and humans need to continue to leverage technology to keep up. Books will disappear into e-books and information does not have to wait 3-4 days for the book to get to your house, as its purchased from the internet and sent directly to you. Therefore, we will see destruction and creation of whole industries and companies. This is fairly easy to predict as many others predicted this already. Very difficult for the average human to keep up with this overwhelming information. Someone will develop automatic data miners to pick up new information as it occurs in the world. These data miners should not just "pick up" information, they need to synthesize it and create well-written summaries of information with preferences for the user.

Many new things are coming into existence, thanks to the internet. It will be a very difficult time for anyone to be living as stress will be higher than ever until we can get autonomous software to do what we are doing on a daily basis.
