Hi folks, not sure if this is the right place to post this, but Gerald Celente of Trends Journal has just released his "Top Trends for 2017". And they are interesting to say the least. If I had to pick three that are likely to occur, I would put my money on RIP: The Fourth Estate, The Ontrendpreneur, and No More cash.


RIP: The Fourth Estate: The daily newspaper is on its death bed. Will the mainstream media at revamp to revitalize? No longer the people's protectorate, tanking public trust and shrinking financial resources have limited traditional media's influence on the public. The Fourth Estate - the unofficial fourth branch of government designed to hold powerful people and institutions accountable - is no longer the domain of the mainstream media. Find out what will replace it.

The Ontrendpreneur®: On-trend creative professionals will be best positioned to identify high-potential opportunities in a rapidly shifting new-world-order economy that slow-moving multinational companies have, and will continue to, leave behind.

No More Cash: The cashless society trend is in full growth mode. It's the Golden Rule: Those that have the gold, rule. In this new cashless society, financial and governmental institutions - not We the People - have custody of digital/paperless cash.



Watch Gerald Celente smack the MSM around the 12 minute mark.



What does ATS think the major trends for 2017 will be?

To address the economic disorder brought about by the Trump administration. Wall street is scared ****less of Trump thus the smart money will cluster up behind Pastor Jim Baker and invest in dried enchiladas and cheese.

I don't really care about trends but better safe than sorry!! The poop bucket will be yuggggeee!!!

I see this very trendy and at least among the top 5!!

As is shown by the stock market surge. Yup, Jim Bakker is where it is at! Good call!

Thanks, this also looks like a yuggge trend in the making. I'm not going to let this opportunity slip thru my fingers.

I do a lot of virtual reality development, in school, for a hobby, and even a few actual (temp) jobs with it here and there. It's still a couple years away from exploding in my opinion. Everyone can make VR goggles out of their phones these days or buy a Rift, but real VR needs more than that. On the consumer level it needs a large open space to move around, and most people don't have that, more over the first gen VR suits are about 3 months out from hitting the market right now, and that's just more stuff people have to buy to use VR (the products will come out quickly).

On a corporate level I think you'll see the rollout soon. A year seems early but I suppose it's possible. One of the projects I've done with it that I can talk about, is creating a virtual model of a companies product, and then creating a VR simulation for people to use/manipulate/assemble/troubleshoot the product. This let them set up training scenarios in seconds with VR rather than hours customizing machines for scenarios, and without the product overhead. There's a lot of value in this type of space, but people are still figuring out what will and won't work.

I give VR another 2-3 years before the whole sector really blows up. The cool individual stuff, that's going to let us all have a holodeck in our living room needs omnidirectional treadmills, better hand controls, vr suits, and better video cards (the current ones barely handle VR).

Never heard of the guy, but it seems like he really loves his creamy potato soup, haha!

Thanks for your input. It will indeed probably take another few years, but the possibilities are almost endless. Cool when you think about it.

I'm very excited over the possibilities of VR, there's a lot that can be done with it. It's the area where I plan to push my career once I graduate next year.

There's a few differences but the technology is similar to a holodeck. Give it 10 years (maybe even 5) and you'll be able to strap into your VR gear alongside a friend across the world, and then go visit a world landmark like the Eiffel Tower or the Pyramids from your living room.

That's where the power of VR really takes off in my opinion, once you're able to network everything and remotely visit places in real time rather than prebuilt scenarios.

Yes, many great things can come from this, very exciting stuff! However, I think that nothing can beat physically visiting and experiencing beautiful places on earth by myself. Not even VR. Well, at least that's what I'm saying now hehe, time will tell.
