Easy agreement here:

1. Flash Intros - not SEO or mobile friendly and effectively killed by Apple.
2. Complicated Forms - Don't ask for information you don't need and expect your email open rates to continue to decline even as your list grows.
3. Skeuomorphic 3D Design - Flat design is in.
4. Stock Photos - YES, finally we kill the Stepford people.

5. Pop Overs - Maybe, but pop unders are all the rage and they are gross and obnoxious, predict they will wane in 2014 too. Look at Rocketbolt.com's much less offensive triggered, subtle popunder instead.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:20 PM

This is a very hot topic to me.  When I took a proposal writing course last summer, I chose to write a (fake) proposal seeking funding for initiatives to teach 3D printing at my son's school.  While doing the research on STEM curriculum initiatives to support my project proposal, there were a lot of articles about the UK curriculum changes to add more STEM topics to school curriculums starting at the kindergarten level, including the basics of computing and coding. I agree with this article that I don't understand why bigger initiatives aren't being brought to the forefront to make this happen in the US--or anywhere, for that matter. It was just a little bit of coding that I had learned as a child, and a little bit that I learned as an adult that helped me get to where I am today. I am not a developer, but I understand how computing works, and that helps me immensely as a technical communicator.  

 

Having a digital education doesn't mean only understanding how to use a laptop or tablet. It means also understanding how it works, and how to make it work--or at least have an understanding of how it works enough to respect what full-fledged developers do. If any country is going to get ahead, it needs to start now. 

 

I grew up when personal computers were just becoming mainstreamed. I remember my father bringing home an Apple II from work, and I learned some BASIC to draw pictures and such. I didn't learn elementary HTML until 15+ years later--and that was 17 years ago. My son is very used to having computers around him due to having computing parents. He thought one of his friends was "poor" because they didn't have a laptop or desktop out for everyone to use, or at least each person didn't have their own, like we do. (For my husband and I, we both brought our own desktops/laptops into the relationship, and then inherited another machine we let our son use. So, no, we aren't rich. LOL).  But he's very used to being around computers. Not all kids have this advantage, and yet in this day and age, they should. 

 

So, BRAVO to the UK for its forward thinking and initiative. It's going to be a big adjustment, and it'll be a lot of work to keep up with ever-moving technology, but it'll be advantageous to its student population in the end. The rest of the world needs to catch up.

This chart highlights a very important fact: "things" like cars, TVs, doorbells, refrigerators, baby monitors, etc. will all be Internet connected soon. This will mark a very important step in the digital transformation of enterprises: the ability to "google" device data to find out what they are doing now (and historically). 


Similar to stock market charts, we'll start to find websites dedicated to providing raw data and analysis on that data. power of the web and big data will allow your individual device (say your heart monitor) to compare your data with that of similar devices and users worlwide to detect patterns, such as heart attack probability.


In the corporate context, with an Internet connected fleet of delivery vehicles, it will be possible to analyze the efficiency of the fleet with comparable fleets, and even maybe compare drivers. This will pose interesting challenges for IT departments as they'll have to manage a flood of new data. We can however expect this data to be consolidated within fleet management solutions and software and sold as a service by those providers.
