The Current Flow, Mid-November 2009
Unlike all earlier predictions now we have just one single point of view instead of the usual World, Business, Technology and Lifestyle categories.
Digital made English the universal language of the web representing it’s mother tongue, the Western culture.
As China takes over the analog world their language is predicted to dominate internet soon.
News, New Media
They are far behind innovation — new ideas like augmented reality, the future of visual entertainment are comming from internet not from media factories.
Money no longer matters when the price is less than free.
Businesses did not yet realized the asymmetric nature of the internet: when you think you are in charge it turns out your customers are who are really making you.
The rule of thumb, the name of the game is Attention. Attention adds the value not the package or fame.
Instead of money time becomes the factor.
In such environment virtual goods might value more than classical branding and identity products.
Profit will become fun and personal, the measure of life experience, not a thing accumulated by various specialized institutions.
Analog and Digital are finally capable to fully sense each other, to recognize a common border.
The Evolutionary Incentive
We think greed, fear, power and influence are common forces driving our analog world.
It turns out there are more subtle mechanisms interested in driving biological life towards the digital.
Adoption and Entry Level
The Driving Force
Is the Open. Pillars Of All Existing are opening up.
Thousands of years dominated by partially hidden control structures now are striking back: everything wants to be known, demands attention; hidden simply cannot survive, global secrets are not sustainable anymore when the smallest details could change a world.
Everybody will realize soon the fun and profitable nature of metaprogramming. We won’t need external programmers –PR firms, hollywood movies, pop scientists — to operate on our resources.
Once we will witness the birth of another simulacra — the internet as a living universe — reality as is today won’t be taken so serious anymore.
Once we will connect all existings worlds together and found the common denominator new universes and lives will be created instantly — yet again just for fun and profit.
