I can’t help myself. I missed a few.
– Yahoo will focus on closing the monetization gap with Google, focusing on new approaches to ad ranking and algorithmic meddling. As much as it might wish to pursue the transparency route so as to differentiate from Google, it will not.
– Enterprise search will show us a few new approaches to consumer search, and vice versa. In fact, we may get to the point where the two are often indistinguishable.
– Hardware (as in the bare metal under the web) will matter again, big time.
OK, back to the Holidays…..
