There were several strong presentations at the Online News Association annual conference, but the one that functioned best as the tone-setter was Amy Webb's 10 Tech Trends You've Never Heard Of.
Well, of course, we had heard of many of them. But her point was: Watch for these, they're likely to be hot commodoties for journalism. The session was jammed into the hallway, where at least there was a semblance of air conditioning.
The list: 2D bar codes, WiMax and Mobile Broadband, Geobrowsing, Cloud Computing, WebOS, Visual Search, Lifestreaming, Ubiquitous Video, Semantic Web, and Multiscreen Journalism.
Her presentation is here.
