My take on MIT's top 10 emerging technologies

Modeling surprise: They have long been working on this, I am yet to see when they will display their prototype.

My take: Dymystification of Dimensions and Interactive visualizations will lead to such tools. when disruption-aware pattern based monitoring will start feeding that engine, we will get data and reality-tools will emerge from all over the place.

Emergence of tools as such will in fact curb and contain the surprise elements by signalling about their occurrence in the future, in the present.

Probalility chips: Totally agree with Krishna.

My take: We need singular multi-tasking appliances and we will see innovation of chips. Also watch out for my other articles where I'll suggest why AMD may eventually have an upper hand, also there will be hoards of chipmakers (there are already).

Offline web apps:

My take: I call them "Optimizable Internet Appliances". We are looking at the Appliance 2.0 breed today. Software appliances, that is still packaged and carried across by all of us. Internet Appliances, the Appliances 3.0 stage will be indeed the connection between the web (via browser) and a device (via locationally reconfigurable hubs - meaning thin layer of SSO/SSL/VPN and session based management and you are up and running as-you-relax)

Alternative Fuels development - Cellulose enzymes, corn, maize, ...water eventually.

I am expecting eventually breaking up the H2 from the water and creating energy for everyone.

Reality mining - Real world web (Gartner's prediction)

My take - Real-Time Analysis. Today we rely, me heavily, on our "senses" to feel and understand the person on the other side. We will soon experience a lot of collisive convergence of human behaviour patterns and how they will "expose" ourselves. Scary.

Others are fun to read as well. See them all here...

I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)

Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

Although, I would urge however that you do change the permalinks, especially on your blogs etc yourselfThis blog is not going away anywhere but within a few months, I will consider discontinuing its usage.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
