Digital predictions for 2012

The Economist’s “World in 2012” has a couple of nice articles about technology/software industry trends that I thought I would share. I liked a couple of the articles:

  • Virgin territory. Prediction: Apple launches a viable mobile payments platform and buys Square.
  • Angel investing: 90% of the world’s data have been created in the last 2 years. Wow.
  • Direct action: Media firms (think Disney) will have to act more like retailers. Time to rejig the industry verticals inside consulting companies. Again.
