These are three fascinating tech trends that keep cropping up.
Distributed social networking
Look at it this way, after Google goggles, you’re going to want to have your “phone” embedded in your head. When you do that, you’re not going to want to sign in with Facebook when you wake up every morning. You’ll want your own personal-brain-station-wordpress, and a choice in where you store your life. Lots of failure here currently, but one will win. See also social web OS, identica, diaspora, tent.io.
Dynamic social graph
Guess what, our relationships aren’t as simple as Facebook friend, LinkedIn connection, or Twitter follower. These early “boolean” social graphs are a poor approximation. I’m looking forward to seeing the nuances of my relationships digitized and gamified (I want progress bars in my Gmail contacts) so I can help people with exactly what they need, and grow my business relationships step-by step.
