Links of Note: Top Trends and Predictions for 2010

It’s Jan. 31st already, and that new year feeling is fading fast, which reminds me of my favorite line from Shelley:

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

But while we are still in the season of resolutions and predictions, I’m providing below a list of Top Trends posts, which will shape my reading and likely my blog posts, in the coming months.

So, what’s your top technology or business prediction for the new year?

And have you decided yet how to pronounce 2010? Is it  “twenty ten,” or “two thousand ten”?

Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty officially weighs in that either pronunciation is correct, though both she and the Associated Press have made the same style decision, to call this year “twenty ten.”

I’m not sure if I’m just very formal or being contrary, but I find myself more often saying, “two thousand ten.”

Enough with New Year’s and winter thoughts. Just 48 more days, until SpringOnward.
