Interesting article on technology trends

The trends they discuss include:
Trend No. 1: The leveling power of the World Wide Web
Trend No. 2: Cloud computing
Trend No. 3: Service-oriented architecture
Trend No. 4: The gathering SCORM
Trend No. 5: Telepresence and anytime, anywhere education
Trend No. 6: 21st-century learning
