Top 5 Losers for 2011

What is Not Hot

1. Privacy

Privacy is back on the list, recent news that mobile application providers collect data about not only the location and habits of their users has created more paranoia about personal information in cyberspace.

2. Social Noise

Social media channels like Twitter are drowning in spam, and the quality of the channel has degraded with the rise of the chatter.

3. Transparency

Unfortunately the woven fibers of the web, make it very easy for savvy individuals to hide or obfuscate their identity. While transparency is preached rarely is it practiced.

4. Regulation

We are not getting any closer to any type of Internet standards or regulations. The Internet still remains the wild west and while pressure can be applied, there is still no centralized body for governing the Internet.

5. Land Lines

Land lines will become a thing of the past, as home phone numbers are replaced by phone numbers for individuals.
