Here are Ric's top 5 predictions for big technology breakthroughs in the next few years:

Healthcare tech - especially carer centric healthcare technologyWearable computing - especially head gear like Google Glass3D Printers - they will change everythingThe localisation of the InternetPersonal Information management and Privacy
These are the technologies I see coming fast down the pipe and going to influence our lives. There are others that I am looking at strategically or personally but I thought these were worth sticking my neck out over. So here are the details:

Carer-Centric Healthcare
Healthcare is the buzzword for technology focus in the next few years as the generations of the 50's and 60's start to hit later life and the world's population starts to age.

The Byron Hub is up and running.

For those of you who came to the Innovation Pipeline event, Id just like to let you know that the web site we talked about is up and running.. every person from the event has their own web page, plus a page to ask for help and to offer to help others...
Kind of a Craig's list for helping each other...
The site uses the same software as Wikipedia so it takes a bit of getting use to, but its really powerful... if you didn't get to the event but want to join the Hub Community, send me an email and I'll set you up.
Hope you can join us.

Innovation Pipeline Success

Yes I turned up.. but it was everyone else that made the event the success it was.. I have yet to send personal thank yous to the speakers or to Donna, Lynne and Katrina from the RDA or the Craig Jenkins and his team at NSW Trade and Investment.. but the bottom line is... it did more than I ever could have expected...
Well whats next...
Had a lot of requests for a session on Crowdfunding for inventors... and lots of volunteers offering help with the Byron Hub and the first stage of the pipeline that I'm concocting... some stuff to keep me intrigued over the holiday break...
So please comment below if you agree and want to comment on the event...
Thank you everybody. Ric
