Happy New Year and welcome to 2015 | ABC Local Radio

New Year 2015 set up of golden digit two, table clock, bottle ofLots happening this year and what better time than the 1st January 2015 to begin the journey and that’s why Mark Sutton of ABC Local Overnight and I caught up in the early hours of this morning to have a chat about what’s ahead, what to expect and generally what 2015 might hold and bring.

After many years of looking backwards and wondering if we’re going to survive and even though we know things are still not great, we’re over it and ready to move forward so expect 2015 to be a more up beat year then we’ve seen for quite a while.

It will bring with it lot’s of tech toys that have been on the fringes for a while, but will become mainstream and ordinary this year including wearable technology, smart watches and 3D printers amongst others.

It’s also going to be a year of human outreach, where global issues will rise like a phoenix in our discussions and hearts and the notions of disruption and innovation move their way ever closer to the becoming normal in our lives and businesses.

It’s also a great time to look at the supposed divide between the digital natives and those that aren’t and ask ourselves whether it’s possible for the rest of us to ever catch up and if so what can and should we do.

A great conversation, perfect for the early morning of New Years day, so have a listen now and then share your thoughts for what 2015 may hold for you.
