Swedish telecommunications giant Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC, news, filings) is sponsoring website promoting discussion on how communications will change our world over the next decade. The 2020 Shaping Ideas campaign brings together thought leaders from across a wide spectrum, and the videos they have on the site so far are quite interesting. They’re also quite large, 122Mb if you download the WMV as I did to watch one since I am currently in the far east. So if nothing else it’s a good way to burn some bandwidth and thus encourage your service provider to spring for an upgrade or two!
Now the only thing we know for certain is that the future will make mincemeat out of every dream and projection these folks came up with, and in 2020 we will surely be able to watch these and laugh. But nevertheless, it is clear that in 2020 the world may look a lot different than it does today. And talking about that transformation is what blogs like this one are all about.
