Everyone is doing their predictions for 2009 right now, and everyone who isn't is claiming that the future is too bleak or complex to predict. What you see below takes both perspectives into account and says: f**k it, let's have fun with this.
- Your 2009 Tech and Media Outlook | Uptown Uncorked
2008 was a big year. An economic recession, presidential election and wild weather certainly made the year exciting; for tech and media, we saw the continued adoption of smartphones, the advent of online mobile application stores, the success of Twitter, and an increase in the use of social media tools by both young and old. And 2009 should have a few big stories up its sleeve as well. There’s a lot coming, and hopefully most will be good.

- 2009 Tech Prediction Faceoff: J.P Morgan Vs. Barclays Capital
Two notes from Wall Street analysts came to my inbox today with top-ten predictions for what 2009 holds in store for the technology industry. J.P. Morgan’s Imran Khan, for instance, predicts Yahoo and Microsoft will finally strike a search deal, video advertising on the Web isn’t working, retail bankruptcies could actually help e-commerce companies, and that M&A activity will pick up in the second half of 2009 (but the IPO market will be dead until 2010).

In this season of predictions, it is wise to be skeptical. That's because an awfully lot of what we hear will turn out to be wrong. That's not particularly disturbing if you're reading prognostications on what the hottest fashion trends will be this spring. But if you're listening to investment forecasts, the cost could be enormous

- In each of the past five years I've written a predictions post - usually at year's end or by the first of January. This one is late, and I'll admit it's because I found it hard to write. The world is showing itself to be predictable in only one way: bad news begets bad news. I've spent a lot of the past two weeks, where I was ostensibly "not working," thinking about what this year will bring. And I'm not much further from where I started: this is going to be a very difficult year, for a lot of people. But I do have a fair amount of hope. I think times like this force all of us to make honest choices about what we do with our energy, our resources, and our lives. And in the end, that brings long term health to markets.

Despite the shaky economy, the mobile phone continues its path as the default remote control towards the Internet of Things, creating various opportunities for new application scenarios for entrepreneurs in an ever-evolving global mobile ecosystem.

The beginning of any year seems to be the best time to make any predictions. At first glance, it seems like there's no harm in putting out a little list among the glut of year-ends and year-to-come lists. If you make a prediction that seems unlikely, you can easily attribute it to enthusiastic wish-fulfillment or to copious amounts of holiday egg nog you consumed.

- Slashdot | A Look Back At Kurzweil's Predictions For 2009
marciot writes "An interesting look at Ray Kurzweil's predictions for 2009, from a decade ago. He was dead on in predicting the ubiquity of portable computers, wireless, the emergency of "digital" objects, and the rise of privacy concerns. He was a little optimistic in certain areas, predicting the demise of rotating storage and the ubiquity of digital paper a bit earlier than it appears it will actually happen. As it comes to human-computer speech interfaces, thought, he seems to be way off."
