Pete Cashmore (founder of and definitely a guy who knows what he’s talking about) and presents his view of the top trends in the web for 2010:

1. Real time web: the web experience (consumption & production) will become more and more instant
2. Localization: Information in the web will be linked to local data and thereby open a whole new level for the internet
3. Augmented reality: a layer between the real and the digital world will become platform for untold experiences
4. Content curation: Be it your social graph or professional curators, filtering information is and becomes more and more crucial
5. Cloud computing: data and even applications won’t stay on your computer much longer
6. Internet TV & movies: this area of entertainment will more and more migrate to the web
7. Convergence: why carry more than one device with you?
8. Social gaming
9. Mobile payments: as everything becomes digital and real time a proper solution for payments on the go will break through
10. Fame abundance & privacy scarcity: What you wanna do when they come for you?

    Hi Olaf,
    what is your personal rating on the topics or maybe other “secret” trends? Personally and, if you want, from a VC point of view.

    Thx a lot.

      @JVR: a rating is rather difficult – please don’t count on it 😉
      1. Mobile Social Gaming
      2. Localization
      3. Mobile payments (this is really a fragmented and crowded sector – nobody knows who will make it)
