  1. The items listed are fantastic. I’d have my own couple of additions to this..
    1. Small Business applications (services)
    2. Human-Machine Interaction space
    3. Online Gaming. (Virtual Reality)
    4. Social Applications and their effect on our lives.

    1. I will add the more specific ones but it will be great if you can pick each one of them and say why they will impact. You can do that in your blog and send me a link, if you want.

      You can even do them one by one (which is what I intend to do).
