SkyNews interview on future of tech: Cloud, Privacy, Big data, Reputation, Death of newspapers


Last week just before I flew to China I did an interview on SkyNews Tech Report about the future of today’s technology.

Topics we discussed in the interview include:

* Whether the recent prominent losses of consumer data jeopardize the trend to cloud computing – the reference point is the reliability of in-house systems rather than perfection

* Will we run out of space to store the massive explosion of information?

* The rise of the reputation economy, driven by the growth in how much meaningful data we generic, is beginning to have a massive impact on both individuals and companies

* Brands are getting more visible reputation through services such as Yelp in the US and WOMOW and Customer Underground in Australia

* Why newspapers will become irrelevant
