It's January 1, 2011 and as I read all the reflective posts, it has me thinking of the new technology that I experienced in 2010. Before we all forget what a big year it was and dive right into 2011 innovations, let's take a moment to reflect.
For me, it was all about the Social Web, Mobility, and of course, the iPad (the only device to make the list). What an impact these innovations have had! I'm not an analyst or a app vendor, and have no agenda to promote any particular technology. I simply seek out technology to simplify my connection with others and to make my day more productive .
2010 was a year of experimenting for this "Early Adopter". This day, one year ago, I had no idea I would discover and incorporate the following into my regular routine. I bet many of these tools were (or maybe are) new to you as well. I'm sure there are some I missed and many that I have yet to discover. So please suggest more through comments or Tweets.
OK, they are not all productive (Angry Birds, Foursquare and Gowalla) but those that aren't, do break new ground and are enjoyable (for a season, at least).
The really neat thing is you told me about all of these innovations. I learn about them by keeping up with the conversation on the Social Web. I'm sure I will think of others that I forgot. But just looking at this list of innovations I didn't even know about 12 months ago is a bit overwhelming.
I wonder if this pace of innovation will continue into 2011. I can only imagine what next year's list will look like on New Years Day, 2012. It's going to be a great ride. Let's take it together.
