Perhaps it’s too easy and too much fun to break out the crystal ball and play prognosticator. I can’t even count the number of times an overzealous music writer has anointed yet another dime-store troubadour as the next Bob Dylan.

But we’re convinced that Paul Taylor of the Financial Times was onto something when he got his Nostradamus on and described the open-source Web conferencing tool Dimdim as “the shape of online conferencing to come.”
