Futurists will be happy to learn about a new website called Future Scanner that tries to take a look into the future by publishing online, all kinds of resources connected to the “yet to come”. Only the top materials, submitted buy Future Scanner members are displayed on the site, after a vote, something very similar to Digg's, social bookmarking page.
Future Scanner, “essentially scans the web for the best future-focused content (predictions by experts, discoveries that will impact future events, product prototypes, industry forecasts, useful resources, etc.) and then sorts it by future Year and Category. When Community members locate these types of cool links, they tag them accordingly and submit them to site via their personal accounts. “
For example here is a link to a very cool article in Forbes about the future of books, ebooks and Kindle.
I like FutureScanner and we will see more and more specialized websites in the upcoming years, because they are a resourceful place for research and entertainment for our customers.
