Ben Evans had a great post on Jan 2 with his tech questions for 2022.

If you haven’t yet checked out his trends presentation, it’s worth a look-see.

Both (the “Tech Questions for 2022” and the “Threads” presentation) were pretty solid reads. Thanks for that, @scott.baldwin

I am curious to see what the tech industry does with blockchain technology. While some were far-to-early adopters, others are cautiously paying attention to the continued backlash from consumers due to how much is known about cryptocurrencies and NFTs (and their impact on the environment due to energy consumption). When crossing into other areas (e.g., games), there’s little value to the end-user that isn’t already possible without blockchain technology (yet, many game studios are “exploring” NFTs and blockchain despite the resistance from their users). 

Same goes for a lot of the other topics Ben mentioned: regulation and privacy are two main areas that can very easily cause ripples throughout the entire “umbrella” of the tech industry. I’ll be reading more content and keeping my eyes wide open for any major movements in any direction for either of those areas.
