I began to think of such a problem: common marketers and astrologers than it seems to. These two people will ask us to gaze at the stars, look to the future. At this time of year, I get a similar email from a client and a reporter who wants to know what’s going to happen in 2014. Fortunately, I don’t need a night view to predict what’s going to happen next, because technology always leaves some obvious signs. Here are the five numbers that you might find in 2014.
1) identity based ecosystem. When I was a graduate student at The University of Texas at Austin, my thesis topic was Twitter (no, this paper is not only 140 words).

Because no one will be thrilled to receive the email, we have already moved from the information hungry society to the information society. However, we still need information every day — more than ever before. Therefore, we see the rise of websites such as Pinterest, Quora and List.ly. Technically, Pinterest is just organizing images that are already there, but it’s a huge success because we really need it.
3) video = device agnostic. When was the last time you said, "when I watch a video on TV?" it’s more likely that you’ll be watching it on TV, but you can easily see it on a tablet or smartphone. The video continues to be agnostic about its device. From the business point of view
