Forty Key Trends for the Next Decade: 20 Key Global Trends and 20 Key Consumer Trends 2005-2015
“ Recent articles on technology indicate the move in the future is towards increased portability, wireless and cheaper devices to get onto the Internet . Also, there is a trend towards Cloud Computing where application programs such as word processors and spreadsheets and documents are located on Internet servers - not on a computers hard drive. These trends not only improve learning but are a less expensive alternative to traditional computer workstations, hard wiring, software licensing and computer servers. Cheaper laptops are part of the accelerating trend to greater portability. The cell phone is growing keyboards (or should they be called "thumb boards” ) and laptops are getting lighter and smaller . Meanwhile over-the-air Internet access is morphing from Wi-Fi to WiMax , as well as traveling over the same pathways as cell phones. These are the other components of cloud computing -- the wireless connections that define the cloud “.
The web allows us to help (and be helped by) other libraries as all of us seek to support our parent organizations and to fulfill our traditional roles as selectors, organizers, preservers, and providers of access to information.
