The Big Six For 2006

I have been invited to speak to the Council of Communications Directors for the ministries of the Ontario Government tomorrow morning. The topic is “The Big Six For ’06 — The Six Big Internet Trends In 2006″.

Here’s the list I’m working from:

  1. Blogging
  2. Feeds
  3. Findability
  4. Search Marketing
  5. Simplicity
  6. Moving Beyond Text

I’ve only got one hour to cover all this which means it will be a whirlwind tour of these key themes impacting all businesses using the Net today. My goal is really to snap their heads back and make them focus on how the Net — and our ideas about what is important online — are changing. Feedback on the list and how it impacts government would be appreciated.
