I am looking for suggestions of sites that offer good educated guesses about websites / web interactions in the future. We’re working on our five-year plan at our university.

Keep up the great work – your presentations are always informative, feature great web talent, and I always walk away feeling like I’ve learned something!

Hi Jon,

Predicting the future is hard. I suggest you focus on the experience of the users and not the specific design solutions that’ll be five years out.

These could help:

Knowledge Navigator Deconstructed: Building an Envisionment

Keep those cards and letters coming.

    Jon, check out Daniel Burrus. I head him speak at Distributech in San Diego earlier this month and his common sense and trend analysis approach to making generalizations about the future of technology is worth looking into. Future interactions will be tied to technology. If you can anticipate the technology you can infer something about the interaction.
