Top 10 Technology Trends

Filed under
Sci/Tech

Technology is one of the last frontiers on the information horizon. While technology can help us do our jobs better, faster, and cheaper, some innovation actually proves to be more disruptive in the long run. So what are the top 10 technology trends in 2006?

The SIIA Information Industry Summit in New York, which was held Jan. 31-Feb. 1, put this question to the ultimate test as five industry pundits voiced their opinions of what's hot, what's not, and what we'll be seeing in the months and years to come. The Top 10 Technology Trends, the last session of the summit conference, took a look at the changes we're seeing in the ways information is channeled, directed, processed, and delivered.

Moderator John Patrick (president of Attitude, LLC, author, consultant, and former vice president of Internet technology at IBM Corp.) kept the dialogue on target with his team of panelists, which included Jason Calacanis (blogger and CEO of Weblogs, Inc.), Jeff Pulver (chairman and founder of Pulver.com, Inc.), Chris Shipley (cofounder and editorial director of Guidewire Group, LLC), and Robert Sutor (vice president of standards at IBM Corp.). Here is a roundup of the trends they see coming, with a little of their own opinions added to the mix:

First distro tests on Lenovo G50 - Ubuntu and Netrunner

We may deride Ubuntu for being modern and newb-friendly and not pure Linux or whatever. But that's nonsense. This splendid distribution, especially in its LTS form, eats hardware platforms for breakfast. I have not yet found a single machine that it didn't support, and didn't support almost 100%. Nigh perfect. This last case is yet another example. I guess the path for future testing has been laid out. I may have to play a bit with setting UEFI on and off, and definitely use Ubuntu bootloader to get things going, but from now, other distributions ought to be able to install. Or not. Either way, I shall copiously rant about it to your uttermost delight. Summing up what we saw today, Netrunner works fine, with numerous limitations and heavy memory consumption. Trusty is a perky little beast with no faults or problems, it's lithe and lean and cool, and purrs like a happy kitten no matter where placed or tested. Draw your own conclusions, dear readers. More distro testing coming soon. Mint, Kubuntu, for sure. Some others, too. Read more

Debian 8.0 Release Date & New Gentoo Website

Niels Thykier today posted that Debian 8.0 now has a "target release date." This isn't written in stone, but it would take something "really critical" to postpone the release. Elsewhere, the Gentoo Linux project today announced the launch of their "totally revamped and more inclusive website." The announcement stated that the old site wasn't "as inclusive as we would have liked." Read more
