Tomorrow’s media will be increasingly personal and flexible, providing a more robust ability to filter out what individuals do not want, and to more fully support, what individuals might intuit as desirable.  The six megatrends are:


  1. Collaboration to harness the power of “an increasingly conversational and participatory world”
  2. Content integrity to monitor data vulnerability and better vet the original sources of information
  3. Nimble media to help ease movement across platforms such as hand-held and larger, appliance type devices
  4. People platforms that allow individuals to improve their social networks
  5. Sixth sense integrating most or all five physical senses in a digital “mixed reality
  6. Smart data that delivers what is sought
