Inquirers top 10 Predictions for 2008

Martin has some hilarious predictions, well it certainly is more refreshing and though-provoking than that of Springboard's hits and misses!

Some of them are here:

5. Cloud computing won’t take off. The Red Hat/Amazon deal was very interesting, but you go first.

4. Music labels leave old DRM town. With Warner leaving yesterday, there’s not much propping-up of this house of cards.

3. The Internet won’t slow down. Like Moore’s Law, there’s too much at stake for repeated predictions to come true.

2. M&A will slow down. Oracle and IBM have already got the low-hanging fruit in enterprise software and a lot of what is unconsolidated will look even less attractive in the event of an economic slowdown. RIM won’t sell to Microsoft. OK, so Palm may go, as will anybody private and VC-backed in virtualisation, and
maybe one of the big Internet properties will sell, but the chaos of the last year will go.

1. Virtualisation on the desktop won’t go mainstream. The geeks who love it overestimate the chances of it having a more general appeal

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
