The integration of IT into virtually all aspects of the economy and society in turn will lead to future business opportunities not yet imagined by today’s businesses and consumers. New digitallyenabled business/social networks will be responsible for generating the lion's share of our economic growth and prosperity in the not too distant future. Consider the technological changes that have happened in recent years.

Some interesting points from a Sony executive presentation posted recently on YouTube:

  • The first text message sent was in 1992. Today, the number of text messages sent/received each day exceeds the total population of the planet.
  • It took the internet 4 years to reach a market audience of 50 million. Facebook took 2 years.
  • There’s over 200 million users on MySpace (if it were a country it would be 5th largest)
  • One out of 8 couples married in the USA last year met online

The number of internet devices in 2008 was 1,000,000,000. The cost of an eee Network PC in Australia is down to $375. Every school child should have one – but be quick we’re running out of IP addresses.
