Who knows what’s next? Why, Wired, of course. Among many other innovations, last year’s Wired Magazine NextFest introduced a new international icon for wireless Internet access, otherwise known as WiFi. Chris Anderson talked about the long tail. The future of exploration (see Richard Branson’s plans for Virgin Galactic) and robotics both received considerable attention. One presentation, “Green is the new Black,” described how “New homes, offices, and vehicles strutting down the retail runway incorporate innovative, sustainable materials while maintaining functionality and style.” We look forward to seeing what’s next in action down the road.
