Topic: Global Relationships/Politics

Headline: Accessibility of information

Nutshell: Information will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Constant connectivity.

Vision: There will be a constant flow of information to individuals. So much so that there is a certain level of inundation. Homogenization of sources will allow speed and access, but will also limit or eliminate competition of that information.
