Google’s chief economist tells us statistician will be the sexy job of the next decade. Now Microsoft provides its vision for 2019 (video below):
The future for 2019 looks a lot like data visualization and some serious data processing, yeah? So you better get ready. Hop on to the band wagon before all the seats are taken. The future sure is lookin’ good. Check out the extended version of the above video in the link below.

By 2019 Flowing Data will be the absolute reference for Data Visualization … but isn’t it already the case ? :P

I would say their vision in this video is more focused on human-computer interaction.
yeah, i could see that too. it’s all intertwined, really
Those visualizations are beautiful. I want to touch.
Mickysoft recycled half of the video from 5 years ago (Retail Future Vision, Manufacturing Future Vision, Banking Future Vision, & Health Future Vision circa April 2004:
Looks suspiciously like hype, sales, and marketing to me. This, from a software company that can’t even build a decent browser.
Oh, I’d say it’s definitely hype, sales, and marketing, but still a cool video :)
Have anyone of you read “The Black Swam” from Nassim Nicholas Taleb? There you have the answer, the probability of this being 2019 is close to 0. Look at 1999 predictions of 2009 and think how close is reality to predictions.
That’s why it’s called vision/concept not a prediction or roadmap. Visions are for inspiration(it got me inspired at least). It’s more like saying “hey look how it _could be_ – you like it? so do sth to make it come true”(like talk to your fav services/apps developers that you want open data). Like Sterling said http://grinding.be/2009/03/01/bruce-sterling-on-the-transition-web/ We need directions and this video gives us some. Now it’s up to us what we do with that.
I’m think most of criticism to this presentation is because it was made by Microsoft. If it was released by Apple everybody will be praising it.
Last thing: Gibson said “The future is already here – it is just unevenly distributed.” All tech needed for things in this video are already here. Maybe except touch reactive e-paper. Only problem is exchanging data and production cost for mass market(like RFID tags).
i dont see any Ctrl+Alt+Delete buttons on any of those things.
