On February 27, 2009, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop presented Microsoft’s vision for the future of business technology. Looking at long term trends and emerging technologies, Microsoft says this vision is “grounded in research and will provide customers with the technology they need and want to address tomorrow’s changing world.” 

They paint broad brush strokes that cover topic from schools, business, and our personal lives.  As you watch the video, can you identify some current technologies that are taken to the next level – or new trends in communication that can bring the world closer together?

The first step in any journey is to see the future clearly so you can chart your course.  (As long as this was created by Microsoft and not some ad agency…I commend Microsoft.)  I find videos like this inspiring.  They focus efforts, inspire communities of people, and provide something for people to talk about.  I am sure you will hear more about this vision in the weeks, months and years to come.

What are your thoughts?   Is this possible by 2019?  Watch the video and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
