Watching The Future – 2011

I found this interesting presentation (above) on Fred Wilson’s blog.  It’s essentially a list of things to watch in 2011, and it’s pretty interesting, particularly because it is not all technology and it stays away from most of the larger geo-political and economic issues.

A couple of things worth noting:

  1. The discussion on “Smart Infrastructure.”
  2. Mobile Money (which will be a major force for change in healthcare sometime in the future).
  3. mHealth
  4. Digital Interventions (like substance abuse interventions!)
  5. Entrepreneurial Journalism (hmm…)
  6. Group Manipulated Pricing (perhaps a future healthcare application – like the old Dutch auctions that were done to price new securities)
  7. A lot of “nutritional” fads, in this case Matcha
  8. The Advent of the Older Workforce (retirement ages must go up for our economy to survive)

There’s more, but these are the ones that had an immediate interest to me.  Check it out.  I think you will find it thought provoking.
