Everything is moving so rapidly I just can't shake the feeling that a year from now there'll be technology available that I haven't even imagined yet (which is a good thing). I know for sure that I'm excited about moving away from the old paradigms of traditional computing and into the cloud-centered/web browsing computing era.
