For those that attended, they were treated to a short, productive networking session, followed by a brief welcome and announcements from our chairman Darren Brown.

Keith set the stage for the presentation by defining what makes a good technology very popular … in a nutshell it’s good technology that makes a difference in people’s lives.

He gave a pretty extensive recap of his technology predictions from the previous few years … 63% home-runs, 22% so-so, and 15% clunkers. Not to worry Keith, we won’t list out the clunkers here — but they included solid technology that just didn’t win the hearts of consumers.

Keith went into some pretty extensive detail about those technologies that are set to make a difference in our lives over the next year or so. Some of the topics included:

  • Virtual Reality making inroads … pushed by the gaming industry.
  • Sensors that reach out … imagine a car alarm that can contact your cell phone when it is set off.
  • Smart Clients Everywhere … all of our devices having intelligence.
  • Entertainment Everywhere … we’re seeing the start of it with iPod, portable DVD players and more.
  • Improved Tools for Building Software.
  • GPS Technology in more devices and applications.
  • Robots become life as we know it … Roomba robots vacuum your carpet, robot drones in Iraq, and the rover on Mars which has lasted a year now.
  • Car manufacturers using safer technology to differentiate their offerings.
  • … and many more.
