Wiser! #53 (Premium): As we end one year and start another, it's a great time to reflect, consider and make a few stabs in the dark about what's to come.

Looking backwards and forwards at the same time

As we start a new year, here’s a collection of bits and pieces to get you thinking. I’ve pulled together some themes from across the Tech Economy. These are some of the key themes that I'll focus on throughout the year. Under each theme are some data points, reflections, trends and opinions. Some might say that these are "predictions" and they'd be kinda right, which is why I've listed them at the end. Mostly it’s a brain dump of the things to keep an eye on as we move into the Year of the Tiger. In no particular order, these are some of the subjects covered in this issue of Wiser!...

  • Regulating Tech will be led by the EU
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Crypto
  • MetaFacebook is still Facebook
  • Web3 is not BS
  • TikTok and the Rise of Social Commerce
  • Apple’s strategic genius is genius
  • Augmented Reality to eat the world
  • Metaverse hype and reality will be conflated
  • Car manufacturers shift focus to software
