My top ten predictions for 2010...

I dusted off the crystal ball to do my top 10 predictions for 2010 covering technology, the valley and a few other random topics of personal here they are in descending order...

10) There is a major malware incident that results in a compromise which is big enough to make the headlines. This will raise the visibility of cybercrime to new levels

9) The IPO market for tech warms up considerably and we see at least 15 filings and 6-7 IPOs out of the valley. I expect these to be about 50-50 enterprise and consumer/web2.0

8) The "cloud" suffers a major outage (unrelated to #10) and this slows but does not halt the drive to cloud-computing

7) Unemployment is the valley continues to hover around 11-12% until after the summer when we finally see real signs of recovery in employment

6) Oracle FINALLY owns Sun (does anyone really care anymore?)

5) The housing market finally stabilizes and we actually see BOTH price and volumes pick up in 2010.

4) The Republicans have a decent 2010 election, but don't fundamentally gain much, though they do slow the Dems down in the Senate

3) The Browns and Indians suck again and the Cavs disappoint in the playoffs (You can take the boy out of Cleveland, but you can't take the sports outta the boy...)

2) The Wildcats (Northwestern) snap their 61 year streak without a bowl game win by upsetting the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl on Jan 1

1) The Wildcats snap their 0 for forever streak and make the Men's BBALL tourney...

Go Cats, and here's to a great 2010...
