Re: Crystal ball: What's in the future for developers and developerWorks?
Here are some of my predictions for the next 10 years: Developers are going to have a much larger voice, in part because of the explosion of social networking. Look for developers, architects, and designers to begin blogging in much greater numbers. Connectivity... in the next few years look for PANs and PAN enabled devices to be as common as todays cell phone. I predict they will be everywhere. Wires and plugs will quickly become a thing of the past. Smarter planet will become not just a reality but common place. We have really been quite lax with our natural resources... look for smart devices to begin to add up real savings for the average person.. and big savings for municipalities.
