Web Technology Trends for 2008 and Beyond: Update

Today I gave a presentation at the XMediaLab event in Wellington New Zealand, entitled: What’s Next on the Web? Web Technology Trends for 2008 and Beyond. It was an update of a presentation I gave in Sydney in March. It covers some of the top trends we track on ReadWriteWeb; such as Websites becoming web services, Semantic Apps, Open Data, Mobile Web, Recommendation Engines.

The presentation is available as a slideshow on Slideshare (embedded below) and can be downloaded too. Each slide has links to ReadWriteWeb content, should you wish to drill down on a topic more.

Let us know your feedback / suggestions in the comments – I will continue to add to and tweak this presentation as these Web trends evolve. Alert readers will notice one new slide, page 9 about The Social Networking Arms Race.
