Outsell’s 2007 Information Industry Outlook

Thanks to Barry Graubart and his Content Matters blog for pointing out this new report from Outsell entitled Information Industry Outlook: FutureFacts 2007. You too can get a copy of this from Outsell’s website; all they ask for is your contact info and where you heard about their services.

My copy hasn’t hit my email inbox yet, but Barry has a nice summary in his blog post. Not surprisingly, it sounds like commodity services such as news and directories aren’t expected to enjoy the high growth rate that search and others are likely to see. Speaking of search, Barry’s last point highlights the lost time spent sifting through search results for the best answer. Been there, done that. It makes you wonder what search will look like in 5 or 10 years.
