If you want to find out how you're going to be working in a few years' time...
... watch the technology journalists.
(...)Technology is the second-fastest changing field in news (after fashion)
You'd watch what the fashion writers are wearing to find out what's going to be in next season. It's the same with technology, but with a longer timelag.
(...)But technology journalists are often also the harbingers of what working life is going to be like. You may not like it. (I, vague, don't!!)
Mike Butcher, the editor of TechCrunch, a technology news blog, writes and updates the site from all over Europe. In January he wrote that he doesn't have a work/life balance – "I have work/life hum." It started after he got an iPhone, with its email, Twitter, Facebook, web browser, calendar, text messaging, voice recorder and – most importantly – permanent, unlimited data connection.

Acho estas matérias fascinantes, naturalmente por gosto pessoal e depois, resultante desse gosto, porque as estudei a nível académico e (aleluia!) porque não ligo nada ao twitter, facebook, etc e afins :). Mas eu dizia o mesmo dos blogs há uns anos.
