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...

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
