  • What new enterprises will dominate the next decade?

    20 years ago, the internet was non-existent, now it is necessity. Since it first started, many new business opportunities opened up. Independently run websites made millionaires out of people.

    Video games, another example. Though it looked like things were going downhill for the whole industry once Atari reached it's low point, Nintendo came around and reinvented the whole industry.
    Arcades were popular for such a long time, as they offered the latest, most advanced games to be played.
    Now the gaming market has advanced past what they generally have to offer, and as such, the Arcade market has gone downhill.

    However, what new things will we see as thriving within the next 10 years?
    I'm not going to be so bold as to pick what I think will become the next household must. But here are some of my ideas:

    With the newer gaming systems available, which allow for independent game developers to have their work showcased for download. I feel there will be a greater growth in independent game developers for a while, which will eventually lead to new gaming companies (Kind of like Sato and Yamazaki's dream in Welcome to the NHK.)

    As technology progresses, the possibility for independent animators to flourish is also becoming more likely. Something like flash animation is often done with with cardboard like characters and repeating motion tweens. However, seeing shows such as Superjail! I've realized that profoundly well animated shows are capable of being made with this, and similar mediums.

    With digital cable, many now have nearly 900+ channels. I wonder how long it will take before independently run channels will become possible. Youtube bridges such a gap now, with the vast availability that the rapid increase in technology, much is and will soon become available.

    With High-Definition becoming the new standard for quality. I'm sure it won't be long before the general cable connections most of us have will dwindle out similar to that of Dial-Up, while the newly introduced faster connections will become mandatory.
    The fact that gaming systems can now accesses the internet, it wouldn't surprise me if the separation between gaming systems, the internet, TV and computers merge more so than they already have.

    I feel many long standing channels are at risk for being one-upped by a new network.
    For instance, Nickelodeon. At one point, they took chances, even though they were a kids network, shows like Ren & Stimpy were played, and many of the kids shows they featured, adults could still enjoy. (Compare the first few seasons of Rugrats, to what they eventually became and you'll see a good example.)
    If another network becomes available enough, this giant could easily have a run for it's money and need to result in some drastic measures.
    The same goes for any other stagnating network.

    With the US slowly sinking as a world superpower, things will no doubt become harder and harder for those of us State Side. Many major corporations have already gone under, things are uncertain, therefore better understanding such trends could help many of us in ways aside from just the Stock-Market.

    Taking into account the economic crisis at hand, a contradiction to all that I've written is that the entertainment business will face some challenges, as the desire for more frugal spending could cause an increase in things that are practical, as opposed to that which could be viewed as frivolous.

    What are some of your ideas?

          Legal Mininova is as alive as a brain death subject.

          Technically... yes... is working.

            Off the bat? Nanotechnology, biotech, new power sources to replace coal and oil, further developments in computing.. who knows, orbital manufacturing? Frankly, predictions such as these are really hard to make. I wonder whether, at the humble beginnings of the Internet, anyone has predicted that it would become nothing less than ubiquitous.

              Maybe is really truth than while the "evolution" of chemical compounds led to life, and the biological evolution led to us... we ourselves are part of
              a cultural evolution.

              What the future will bring ? No one knows, but a thing is certain. Reality will keep on being more fantastic than fiction.

                  Indeed. Gagarin should be remembered by other people than space race enthusiasts. Although there are certain unpleasant rumors concerning the beginnings of the Soviet manned space program, namely that Gagarin wasn't the first Soviet cosmonaut, but the first Soviet cosmonaut who returned alive from space.

                      Well, like I said, these are rumors, although knowing the attitude of past Soviet rulers, I wouldn't be too surprised. They never had qualms about sacrificing citizens to a "greater cause". I hope you are not offended, but of that, there are ample proofs.

                            She's right. And that's a rule not only in Japan. DVD boom would not be possible without the porn industry, and as far as I am aware of, recent victory of Blu-Ray standard over HD-DVD was also dictated by increased adoption by XXX movie producers.

                              There are a number of problems I feel can influence the porn industry. Though I've not taken the time to study the numbers associated with sales and such.
                              The internet brings much free porn to virtually everyone. With this, it would seem the articles featured in such magazines as Playboy serve to boost sales more so than the nudes.

                              In regards to Hentai, due to the general disinterest displayed by the American public, as well as the judgment factors, it's not often one will come across Hentai in substantial quantity, though I will cite FYE as having an abundance for whatever reason.
                              Hentai has a negative stigma here, more so than regular porn. To continue this problem is that of Lolicon, which I've never seen anywhere for sale in the US. Hell, even Kodomo No Jikan got pulled from being released stateside thanks to the vulturous media the US houses.
                              Lolicon in particular is now being made illegal in much of Europe, which will continue to make many sites (DA for example) ever consider allowing such things on their sites.

                              With Blu-Ray, I feel it will have to offer even more than just high-definition, the bonus features will have to go beyond that of DVD to make reasonable sales given today's economy. Though I am certain, even though Americans are becoming more frugal, the market is aware of this, and will not fail to disappoint it's public with many new features.

                              Though in regard to the image I posted, despite sounding like a nerd, I wouldn't actually mind having that. Not for humping and such, I just think it would be an awesome site to wake up next to.

                                Here perfect idea. We would get so good at 3d, that our models will look very much alive. We'll film a scene using motion capture, but we get to edit the "porn stars" characteristics. For example, you get to customize your porn stars cup size, rear size, ethnicity, height, tattoos, and so on. Basically, it'll be like an H game, except better.
