Next Web is MobileThe next big thing is not on the computer. The post-PC era is said to be here soon. Smart cell phones are becoming a new platform. Voice recognition is about to take off. Microformats, microblogging and mobile micro management of CRM are made possible.
HOW WE INTERACT
The change of interface is important. We're changing the way we interact with devices. Command and control with voice is becoming important. We are now having the ability to be talking to the walls! Also take a look at the future Magazine concept from Bonnier
One of the side-effects of the smart phone revolution is that it's taken technology out of offices and into every other room in the house. We're texting in the garden, watching mobile TV while on public transport, at the bus stops, on the train.

Wikis are finally becoming a useful tool for collaboration and information sharing in the workplace.
Rather than the one-way communication offered by corporate blogs, enterprise wikis facilitate conversations between multiple people within, and sometimes outside of, an organization.

Virtualization means less travel and higher productivity. Online collaboration is a sustainable working model. Open global knowledge transfer and user generated research and development are fields were big improvements can be made by passionate and hard-working people.
Historically, businesses have understood the economic benefits of collaboration services in terms of operational improvement. More recently, however, the broader value of such virtual communication tools has been increasingly recognized in providing organization-wide access to invaluable knowledge resources.
Today's enterprise comprises people, knowledge, technical experience and best practices, which are typically dispersed globally across the business. The key to success in bringing these talents together and exploiting them effectively depends on getting beyond traditional geographical and technological barriers.
The challenge now for both end users and the technologies that support them is two-fold. Firstly, online communication tools should be both easy to deploy and easy to use. Equally important, they should offer universal access if they are to deliver the full benefits of virtual meetings, both internally and between companies.
