That's the question, what *IS* the next big thing.  I was at a meeting 
of technologists and venture capitalists a few years ago, and the 
person I was talking to asked if I knew what the next big thing was.  
He was sitting on $400 million of venture cash until someone could 
convince him of the next wave.  This was during the post-bust period of 
maximum VC skepticism.
