The Death of the PSTN. This will force all business communications to Hosted IP solutions. It will be much more efficient for both the Carriers, like att and VZ, and the end users. This massive shift will and is creating huge opportunities.

Think about what this means, almost (some have already made the leap) every business has to move its communications services.

I have seen the innovation already. It is in the clean energy space, but "clean energy" is but a subset of the coming technical revolution. We are working on structuring a business that will implement this scientific breakthrough.

In the near term, the integration of deep learning into context based search, retrieval, and synthesis across many applications. Despite the hype, deep learning is still in its infancy, and has yet to be deployed everywhere that it can be.

Wew just came out with a patented storage facility for commercial solar systems.As the solar system pays for your electric during the day, the extra is stored, used during the evening hours and can and is sold back to thre electrical companies during peak useage-ex- Ca lowest rate is 6 cents per hour, highest .46 cents per hour. you store the elctric and reselll at peak hours,.The electric companies love it for it take pressure off their system.Our min commercial solar system is only 30KW. Im already going to save a co. 600 k a year and we havent even discussed our new storage system available in San Diego, Ha. and Az on;ly at this time.

Randall: If your technology performs as advertised, it looks good - but is probably not in the category of BIG technical innovation. What is your storage medium?

I'm going to go technology on this one: The Wearable Holodeck.

We're just talking about Augmented Reality + Wearable Haptics. No new technologies or 'sci-fi' inventions, just refinements of what we already have.

I think that we'll see the Wearable Holodeck really come into its own when it comes to economic decision making. It would mark a dramatic shift away from low-quality disposable goods and towards ones that either enhance the existing experience (more cameras, CPU power, etc.) or that provide things that it cannot (comfort, food, etc.)

I think that there is about to be a huge shift in manufacturing. With more manufacturing becoming more and more automated (performed by robots) labor cost becomes less and less of a factor in the total cost of a product. And more labor moves to the service and sales sector. Also with rising attention to climate change effects of transportation and shipping, and energy and real estate costs of storing idle inventory, and landfill disposal costs of unsold inventory, more and more of these true costs start getting captured and become a larger and larger portion of the product cost. These combined changes reduce the economic advantage of centralized mass manufacturing, and decentralized on demand manufacturing of many products become actually more economical, and can now be operated by the new under employed service sector employees releases from automated factories and transportation sector jobs lost to autonomous vehicles (and maybe from AI taking over more white collar work too). In any kind of economic sea change this large there will be many new opportunities created for those adventurous (and wealthy) enough to take a risk on a new niche that never existed before. Change this substantial will take one or two decades (and hence generations) to ripple through the economy, creating many fleeting moments of opportunity. However once a specific business sector has transitioned from centralized to decentralized the new leaders may enjoy their new found position of dominance for several years before the next wave of economic sea change forces arrive to stir things up again. The one constant in life is change.

My crystal ball says:

The end of centralized power distribution in favor of fuel cells at each house powered by natural gas/propane/fuel oil.

Bio-engineering the end to ageing - people will live an unlimited number of years.
