A Look Back at Looks Ahead

Even more fun than reading predictions for 2009: reading predictions for 2008. NYMag’s predix for the biggest business stories of 2008 royally missed the mark (e.g. Goldman Sachs will end the year at $300/share … ouch). ReadWriteWeb’s predix mostly bombed (Hakia goes mainstream? massive Facebook/Google decline? Twitter and Tumblr acquired?).

(I found this by searching Fimoculous.)

Wait, you guys haven't been using Hakia?

Yeah, these are great. I was a big fan of Arab investors buying Citigroup according to ReadWriteWeb.

And also this: "8. Apple completes its dominance of the music business, as the music producers decide no longer to produce new CDs."

Apple just announced they were lowering prices and dropping DRM. (Thank you, Amazon).
