Loic Le Meur at Davos 2011: 7 Trends in Digital Convergence

Loic Le Meur, founder of LeWeb and European tech giant, spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In his talk he touched on seven out of the many trends that are changing the digital landscape.

  1. Digital convergence is about sharing in more and more places. One person can have an email adress, blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and many other social network apps. 
  2. Everything in the cloud means less privacy.
  3. The web has a deep impact on our brain.
  4. Location sharing has been a game changer.
  5. Everything is becoming a platform. For example, a hacker installed an iPad in the dashboard of a car.
  6. Your own body is becoming a platform. A suite of exercise, weight loss, and nutrition apps have made your actual body part of the social network.
  7. Social networking + objects = social objects. Product like Lady Gaga's glasses for Polaroid are turing everyday objects into social networking tools.
