50+ lists of digital predictions for 2009

2843731730_bb6f325081_m.jpgIt started out with a quick gander of eMarketer's list of 2009 predictions which has been bouncing round Twitter for the last day or so, then a chuckle with The Onion's list of predictions and then the madness descended. I should have learnt from last year's round-up, but alas no.

Below is the result in somewhat arbtitrary categories, a monster list of prediction lists. I'd love to pour all these lists into a clever tag tool and see what the key themes that drop out the other end, from a quick perusal, Twitter, Facebook, Cloud Computing, sensible business/get real/downturn/belt-tightening/good for digital and wild M&A speculation emerge.

Clearly, there's loads of predictions missing, so do let me know (email / Twitter) or add a comment if there's any that should be added.

Thank you for including Blind Five Year Old in your list of 2009 Predictions. You've done a great job collecting them all. Now we just have to wait a year to see if anyone had any of it right.

All the best.

NMK's own list of predictions (no new media site should be without one) is online here: http://nmk.co.uk/article/2009/1/3/new-year%E2%80%99s-evolution-what-does...

Quite right, too.

Good shout Ian, I'll add this to the list above for those that don't make full use of the scroll bar Wink
