My Non-Techie Friends are Starting to Use Twitter…

One thing I’ve noticed recently is that a lot of my normal non-techie friends have started using Twitter. I think Twitter is slowly becoming mainstream. What do you think?

So… Where’s the innovation?

This morning I was thinking about how recently I’ve been having trouble finding things to write about, in my blog. I’m glad I’m not a professional writer because I can imagine sometimes you’re forced to write about the stupidest stuff just so you have something to write about.

I read just about every popular technology blog that I can get my hands on. I have to say that in the last 3-4 months I don’t feel like I’ve seen anything that’s been that innovative. There hasn’t been that much which has just blown me away.

When is the last time we had a new game changing technology?

Who’s going to be the next company which is going to come up with something that’s going to light a new spark in people? You saw that spark when the Apple iPhone and Facebook Platform opened for development by third parties.

But what’s next? Single sign on with Facebook Connect, the latest Twitter app, and the thirty sixth texas hold-em game or location based social network for the iPhone can only be so interesting.

Wanna Know the Future? Ask Children.

As i’ve said before, we’re amidst a revolution.   Change is here.  The way we live our lives will never be the same.

Seems like I spend a lot of my 9-5 helping people to understand the revolution and that change.

A few times I’ve joked… that everyone needs to take a road trip to a local middle school and you’ll learn all you need to know about the future of the Web and media.  After more thought… I think that’d probably actually be a killer idea.

New York City VC Fred Wilson has some really cool analysis about the future of technology and media based on some experiences he’s had with his kids and it all seems really right on.

I don’t have children but should probably start hanging out with more of them.  For those of you who do have children, what kind of Web, technology, or media trends have you been noticing from them?
