Morning! The Christmas season is upon us and I wanted to write a Christmas post; a sort of summary of wishes that on a multitude of occasions coincide with technological advances that could improve our lives.
2012 has, without a doubt, been the mobile year; a few years ago we never could have imagined the penetration and impact that smartphones would have on our lives. I wish for a real relocation of work that allows us to improve our personal lives: connected 24 hours but free!! 2013 will be even more mobile; you either exist on a smartphone or you don’t exist at all!
This has already begun, but it will grow and grow over the next few years – new life inside or recycle. In technological terms we will see the peak of products with a large capacity to improve software and programming, and update services, without needing to continuously change terminals. Zyncro has known this for a while, and it is a tool that hasn’t stopped evolving, maintaining its pricing. I wish for updates that don’t cost more
We’ve heard a lot of talk about Big Data, often without knowing, or at least for me, what it means on a practical level for the consumer; however we outline what we call Data Mining or Useful Data for 2013. We only want what is useful, “don’t bother me, just give me the information I need”, we are moving towards the semantic web, my wish: to be more precise and save time
Sharing, coworking, crowdfunding… are terms I’ve used often in my last few posts. Share, maximize, focus are verbs I like to use, the reality of the recession has made us search for innovative formulas for creating, working and sharing, by using technology. I wish that we could all show more solidarity and respect to both the material and the human environment.
Here’s a video about coworking.
Another trend will be MedicalApps, looking after and curing ourselves, being more self-sufficient in monitoring our health, with the corresponding savings in time and money. My wish is for these Apps to be useful, so that millions of people can access a health system.
We will see a trend towards what is local, made here, which will become extremely important, from an energy saving point of view, and because in a world that is increasingly more global and interconnected we need to be aware of what we are and where we are. My wish is for us each to find our identity in the coexistence with others
This is a list of technological trends and human tendencies and some of my wishes with regard to growth.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
