I recently ran across a list of the 7 best cities for IT jobs, and was a bit surprised by some of the cities listed. However, what really got me thinking was this: What will this list look like in 10 years? Will there even be a list like this in 10 years?
The way technology is evolving, the best place to work in 5-10 years could very well be wherever you live. The rise of smartphones/tablets and the constantly connected workforce is minimizing the need for a physical workplace. It’s a trend that could really save lots of money for many businesses.

It means that when others change it, they must email back to everyone. It means that you always have multiple versions of the same spreadsheet floating around…which frequently causes errors.

If you’re a regular reader, you know that I talk about web apps a lot. The web is an increasingly important aspect of your business, and will only become more important. If your company doesn’t take advantage of the web, you’ll quickly fall behind.
On that note, I just read an interesting article on CIO.com entitled, “6 hot workplace trends for 2011.” Guess what the underlying theme is? That’s right…the web! The article lists few great points along with some examples of ways that the workplace is becoming more web-oriented and productive.
If you have any other workplace trends that weren’t included in the article, I’d love to hear them in the comments.
