2014 has landed like a cotton ball dropping onto a wet bathroom floor.
No boom, no buzz, no fireworks (none that I managed to see at least).
That’s because we’ve only just started. I believe 2014 will be an interesting year in tech and media.
In the tech space, we’ll see some companies try to innovate harder in the wearable devices space but not many will get it right or even meaningful.
In the media space, we’ll see some companies embrace the digital space a lot more than before. With luck and a lot of guts, we may see their digital efforts pay off in really big ways. (Think Beyonce’s digital exclusive release on iTunes – really nice album, by the way).
Will we even see a major film release on digital platforms first? Surely one can dream.
We’re about 9 hours in and some of us are curing a bad hangover while others simply just woke up feeling exactly like it was yesterday. But I have a feeling that we’ll be surprised and delighted at some point this year.
Here’s to a great 2014.
