In our book we talk passionately about the need for portfolio workers to keep up to date with new technology and we do our best to pass on any tools or tips that we discover that might be useful to you. There is an excellent and brain stimulating article about the future of the web by Cameron Chapman which lists  what he sees as the 15 most likely developments.

  1. Micro-Payments For Quality Content
  2. Wider Monitors For More Horizontal-Scrolling Content
  3. Magazines In A More Interactive Format (Wiki, Digital Video, Etc.)
  4. More Collaborative And Real-Time Content
  5. More Semantic Content And Apps That Exploit Them
  6. Augmented Reality In Mobile Web Applications
  7. Better Adoption Of Web Standards
  8. Better Web Security Against Phishing, Scams and Spam
  9. Even More Social Apps
  10. More High-Quality Online “TV” Programs
  11. Web Apps Play A Bigger Role In Daily Life
  12. Search Engine Optimization Will Be Less Important
  13. Your OS Will Be Online
  14. Customized User Interfaces
  15. The Web Will Be The Center Of Information And Content Distribution

Don’t be put off by the jargon. The explanations are much more accessible.
