On Monday I asked, indirectly, who will follow Steve Jobs and become the industry’s next thought leader?
Eastside reader Jean-Jacques Dubray, who has met both Jobs and Bill Gates, predicts it will be the Google guys, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. He said they’re the logical choice since Web 2.0 has moved the center of gravity from clients to the servers, where the content lies.
“We have entered another area, the next 20 years will see giants emerge and eclipse the desktop boys,” Dubray said.
That’s a pretty good guess.
I was wondering if we’d see a superstar rise out of Korea, China or India, or maybe even Scandinavia, but that may take another generation or two.
Any other predictions?
