Futureseek 2010 News Highlights Review.

December 31, 2010 1 comment

Why a lot of the top 10 lists miss the point. The year belongs to all the small innovations that don’t necessarily percolate to the top 10 lists. With that in mind I’ve built a small list of the little things from the years news, that made 2010 what it was. This list could easily be 2x or 3x expanded in size…. taken individually they don’t mean much by themselves, however read collectively paint a rather nice little picture. Happy New Year Everyone, enjoy the 2010 futureseek news highlights ….
