Looking towards 2009+

First and foremost: all the best wishes for 2009 for you and your loved ones! It's that time of the year again: my Reader is full of good posts on the trends for this year and beyond. Last year, I had a post on the technologies that may reshape our Industry, find it here. Now I have to honest: I've been struggling with the 2009 trends. Only because of the Dutch blog molblog.nl did I come across the trend maps of Ross Dawson. He already posted the last version before Christmas, but hey, should you not have seen this before, take a look! Ross and his team made similar trend maps for 2007 and 2008 and now there is the Trend Blend map for 2009+. You can also click on the picture above to download the original pdf version ...
I like it how they added the Red Herrings and the Global Risks, in fact, I particularly like the risk of "People taking trend maps too seriously"
;-)
So maybe I won't come up with my own trends this year, and I'll simply take the best of Ross and the rest... How do you see the Industry evolve in 2009?
