The New Media Consortium released its list of six Horizon Topics for 2010 and the Horizon Report 2010 Preview. the Horizon Report is "must reading" each year. Read it. Share it. Discuss it. The reports were originally for a higher education audience but now has a huge following. They are the result of the rounds of discussions and voting by the advisory board members (academics). The final report will be officially released on January 20.
