The topics that will drive discussion in 2014 on Twitter and in blogs, conferences, and magazines, such as Information Today, are wearable computing and the Internet of Things, personalized and individualized learning, and analytics. Technology trends such as mobile, Big Data, and predictive analytics are shifting from "how it works" to "what it can do" for you as a consumer or as a business. You manage your data and communicate with others via the cloud by sending results to your doctors or sharing stats with friends on Facebook. Business Insider forecasts the annual wearable device market at 100 million devices by 2014 and 300 million units by 2018, adding up to a $12 billion market by 2018.
