JANUARY 3, 2010
2010 will mark the beginning of the end of US dominance of the web. 2010 will see a major privacy brouhaha , not unlike the AOL search debacle but around social and/or advertising related data. 2010 will see the rise of an open gaming platform , much as 2009 was the year of an open phone platform (Android). Google will take most of the brand blame, but also do the most to address the issue in 2010. Related: 2009 Predictions. 2009 How I Did. 2008 Predictions.
