It’s my 9th Davos in a row and I am lucky to be invited to speak twice this year, I’m giving a talk on future trends “digital convergence” in David Kirkpatrick‘s session and I moderate my own dinner on “social networking addiction” tonight, both are over-registered (the WEF keeps the sessions small) which makes my day.
Here is the 10 mins video and a few notes, there are many more trends but I did not have more time. Thanks Robert for recording it.
1. digital convergence is actually about sharing in more and more places
Then I explain as both individuals and enterprises can monitor this stream and interact in real time, here is an outline of the trends I highlight:
2. Everything in the Cloud means less privacy
-the founder of Twitter Evan Williams gets his emails posted on the blogTechCrunch
-the US government“gag requests”user data from social networking sites for some users involved inwikileaks
3. The web has a deep impact on our brain
-email,sms,Facebookand Twitter intrusions nonstop
-impossible to read abook
-cannot concentrate on a task
