2015: speculation and prediction

2015 is going to be one of those years. Something strange will be happening on one of Jupiter's moons... well, maybe. Certainly it's a year when we'll be totting up how we're doing on millennium targets. And it's just too far for the common five-year predictions so people can speculate a little more. And it's a nice round number... So I've spent time talking to some fascinating people, including landsmand of this parish, about the way IT is going to change by then, and the results are now published over at IT Pro.

Hydrogen buses, robot-driven tanks, automatic speed control in your car talking to intelligent traffic systems - and Crossrail might finally be taking London commuters to work*. Everyday technology will have changed a lot by 2015, and business technology will have changed with it.

*OK, some of this is obviously unlikely...
