What’s trending in 2013

October 3, 2012

As 2012 meanders its way to a close, it’s a perfect time to future-gaze, take stock of the trends and inklings behind us and ponder which will find their place in 2013 and beyond and this is what Adelaine Ng of Radio Australia and I did this week in our FutureTech segment as we explored the rise and rise of the mobile phone and mobile computing; cloud computing; pictures will increasingly say more than a 1,000 words as we continue to disengage with the word and reengage with visuals leading to the continued rise of YouTube, Pinterest and other picture based sites and apps; and generally how might be thinking, behaving, buying and feeling in 2013.

Lot’s to cover and lot’s to think about, so have a listen now and then share with us your thoughts on what will rise and fall in 2013.


6PR Big Weekend – FutureTech Segment – 26 September 2010

September 26, 2010

Rise and rise of YouTube, iPad, Apps, Amazon sells 1.8 eBooks to every hardcover and why FaceBook is not at all evil were just some of the topics that Ted Bull and I chatted about as we reviewed the past six months of what’s happened since the weekend show went on its winter break.

But it’s summer now and FutureTech is back for its fourth (4th) year as a weekly segment on Perth’s 6PR Big Weekend program – ah, it’s good to back.

Listen to this weeks segment now, and join me on Twitter for in between news and views from the future.
