Ran across this article by Jason over on 37signals.com and found it pretty interesting. He thinks that the “most innovating” software in the future (at least in the next 10 years) will:
- Be Web-based
- Be built by small team
- Be self-funded (as far as the company behind the software)
- Be for “side-businesses” (or at least tiny companies he says is 1-10 people)
He points out that this market is greatly overlooked and people looking to start a side-business want a new type of software that helps them do business without the learning curve of scaled-down enterprise applications or the IT overhead associated with larger packages / non-web software.
