Here’s How Network-Based Services Will Change Your Life: Juniper Networks

Now I remember why this has been sitting in my queue for two weeks: Juniper Networks announced a fascinating survey on business and consumer attitudes towards “digital cohesion” but didn’t release the data.  Frustrating.  But they did publish a great paper, available here, that describes what happens when “predictive, automated, network-based mega-services adapt to user behavior, enabling better decision-making and enriching personal and business lives.” In plainer English, connected services will automate day-to-day tasks and give vast power to the companies that control the automations. By “great paper”, I mean it agrees with my own predictions. Good weekend reading.
