Reading into the future of Tech

For the economist, futurist, visionaries out there seeking all truth and knowledge in where technology is heading, I think Tim O’Reilly is on to something big.

O’Reilly is tracking book sales on tech topics and leveraging this data to see the shifts in market interest. Brilliant. Kinda like dah.

The coolest part is that this research is truly a “futurist” prospective because in technology, it takes time to develop and deliver solutions. So if the research says a certain category of book sales is flying off the shelf, you’ve to conclude that something is going to come from it. An output. A finished good.

Read it and watch. We might just have a new insight into predicting the future.
