From "e" to "o"

It just occurred to me. The last decade was defined by the prefix "e" - ePhilanthropy, eDiplomany, eCommerce, e e e.

The next decade will be similarly defined by the prefix "o" for Open - oGov, oData, oPhilanthropy...

Just you watch....

Lucy, excellent observation! One that I’d like to take a little bit further. The “e” decade was preceded by the “i” decade and it is my hope that the “o” decade will be followed by the “u” decade. Wouldn’t it be nice if over the span of 40 years we went from being self centered to other centered. May be that’s how we’ll solve the world’s problems.
