Lots of interesting information here, and nothing — aside from the clever wording — that is too far out on the limb. Take, for example, the trend of “online oxygen.” Will 2008 be the year we’ll “need a thousand pages/screens to highlight every noteworthy online sub-trend and Big Idea to watch,” as Trendwatching suggests?

If the online summary isn’t enough to slake your hankering for trend info, you can purchase the whole enchilada for a mere $699.
