Structured blogging and real-time blogging
Consistent with some of my interests (including software agents), I now see that people are starting to talk about "structured blogging" as well as real-time alerts. All of this is only going to stress our polling-based internet architecture much further.
The real point here is that all sorts of real-world applications become much more interesting when you start getting serious about structure, hard-core information flow, and time-sensitive applications.
