9 Predictions for '09

Just for grins I thought I’d share my predictions for 2009. We’ll have to wait and see what actually happens, but I think most of these predictions have a decent chance of coming to pass.

  1. Twitter will be flooded by corporations trying to monetize the platform. Most will have no clear objectives.
  2. Britney Spears will release a Gospel album.
  3. Middle East unrest will result in the rise of global consensus to use drastic measures to bring quiet (there will be no peace) in Israel.
  4. MySpace will make an effort to regain ground lost to Facebook, but will fail.
  5. The UK and the United States governments will partner to launch a ratings system for the net. The ratings will be used to stifle free speech.
  6. Facebook will make obvious efforts to compete with Twitter.
  7. President Obama’s emphasis on service to our fellow man will continue the changes already seen in our economy as it shifts its focus from material goods to intangible benefits.
  8. A radical change in publishing and journalism will push both industries towards a greater online presence. Many paper products will become eproducts.
  9. Traffick to this blog will increase six fold.

Think I’m really off on one or more of these? What do you forsee for 2009?

    Great predictions! I usually do better with resolutions than predictions, but I’ll try to think of some.
