At the end of 2011 we put together a collection of predictions for the year ahead marking something of a Christmas tradition here at Nesta.

The predictions spanned the tech, retail and entertainment industries as well as business and the public sector.

We went on to publish a new set of predictions for 2013, and we’ll soon be publishing our thoughts on what will be big in 2014. Below are the original predictions we set out for 2012.

A year after publishing, we revisited them looking out what we got right and where we were off the mark.
