Emerging trends

Technology Review has published its 10 emerging technologies for 2008 ( It covers technology in the widest sense but includes ICT. The 10 technologies are:

cellulolytic enzymes
atomic magnetometers
surprise modeling
probabilistic CMOS
reality mining
offline Web applications
graphene transistors
wireless power

The feature on offline web applications is interesting although focuses on Adobe's Integrated Runtime (AIR) which is in beta mode and plans to offer developers the ability to develop software which will run in either offline or online mode. The idea is to stretch the benefits of the web and cloud computing and provide users with the best of both worlds.
