Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 9:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Hmmm can we predict the future... will be interesting to see what happens with these tools.

OCCUPY WALL STREET (the theory)

OCCUPY WALL STREET (the theory) | Urban Life | Scoop.it
Really simple: Occupy Wall Street is an open source protest. This type of protest has been very effective over the last year in toppling regimes in north Africa. It's proving relatively successful in the US too.

A friend is challenging me about it toppling regimes there - the regimes is still in control - maybe the middle man has been cut out?
P2P Foundation's comment, October 11, 2011 3:03 PM
hi mark, the regimes "have" been toppled, but other factions of the elite are still in control ... revolutions are processes not one/off events ... we have not seen the end of the process in the middle east; lots of things can happen, including counter-revolutions ..
MarkDilley's comment, October 13, 2011 4:19 AM
of course - the military being one of them. I imagine revolutions happening daily in the whole of life, very much the daily process.
