Starting from the beginning: Looking ahead at 2010

29 01 2010

January. Start of a new year, a new decade even, new beginnings and a new blog! Cruddy weather, post-holiday depression and impossibly ambitious resolutions aside, this is the one time of the year that most people feel optimistic about what they can achieve in the next 12 months – a clean slate (or Pad?) if you will.

So in this, our very first blog post, we thought it appropriate to stick with this theme and offer our thoughts on the conference themes that we think will be big in 2010 and why. They are below in no particular order.

Agree? Disagree? Did I miss some? Drop me a comment – we’d love to hear your thoughts on the hot themes for the year ahead.

Of these six themes, I personally think mobile is the most exciting of the bunch.  What? Recovery you say?  Pah!  Economics can’t find me the nearest pub or give me Doodle Jump. My recent acquisition of an iPhone has me spending more time on it than I care to admit, and my monthly bill for app purchases is rivaling my weekly grocery bill.  My esteemed colleague Chris would disagree with me (hates iPhones – has an HTC), but I think the popularity of the iPhone and all it can do is the reason that ‘mobile’ is on everyone’s lips (consumers and industry alike) this year, and why it will be a hot conference topic.

Over the next week we will be looking in more detail at each of these hot themes, so stay tuned!
