What will come after Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest? It’s a question that is debated all too often in tech circles around the world. Of course no one knows the answer at this point, and we probably won’t know until ‘it’ defines itself as the next big thing over time.
I was looking around the web a few months ago when I came across an anonymous post on a Quora thread. Among a flood of suggestions, this comment had racked up 880 likes with its direct & inspirational message.
It has become a mantra for myself and the Showzee team!! It perfectly summarises how I and many people feel about this question:
The next big thing will not come out of an incubator.
The next big thing will not involve people who attend or speak at tech conferences.
The next big thing will not be discussed on Quora as being the next big thing until it is already obvious.
The next big thing will not be created by people who were previously considered to be “experts” in the field. The next big thing will be done by some random guys that you’ve never heard of, in a garage somewhere.
Thanks for reading this post! What do you think will be the next big thing?
