5 Years From Now…

Seth Godin looks ahead:

Assume that [in five years from now]:

– Hard drive space is free
– Wifi like connections are everywhere
– Connections speeds are 10 to 100 times faster
– Everyone has a digital camera
– Everyone carries a device that is sort of like a laptop, but cheap and tiny
– The number of new products introduced every day is five times greater than now
– Wal-Mart’s sales are three times as big
– Any manufactured product that’s more than five years old in design sells at commodity pricing
– The retirement age will be five years higher than it is now
– Your current profession will either be gone or totally different

What then?

What can we do to bring a similar future to the world’s emerging markets?
