Press Clippings: Published Technologies to Watch Lists

This area is a place to collect "Technologies to Watch" lists published by other organizations. Though these lists and publications may serve a different audience and purpose than the Horizon Report does, they contain many useful descriptions and discussions that can and should inform our work. This initial listing represents the newest items from the Horizon Project Navigator Library (explore more Technologies to Watch Lists)

We'd love to see your additions here as well! Please use the edit this page button to add an item, or add comments on how or why you think they may or may not be important. As is the convention throughout the Horizon Project Wiki, we ask you to mark items you think are of high interest to this project, as I have done here by typing 4 tilde (~) characters-- - larry larry Jan 27, 2011This will help us to sift through the articles and determine which ones resonate most strongly with the board as a whole.
