At the time when bands promote themselves at MySpace and Youtube instead of their own website and ad campaigns direct people to participate in a social media rather than visit a branded website, Eric Schmidt notices: '...this is the beginning of the real win of cloud computing, of applications, of the internet, which is changing the paradigm that we’ve all grown up with so that it just works regardless of platform or hardware you’re using' and introduces the HTML5 (the must read for ALL webdesigners and SEO Freelancers too). Latest Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome (still not IE :) already support it. The most interesting HTML5 brings are - Web As Platform - canvas, audio / video, geolocation, web workers, appcache / database.
Since Microsoft is goes to launch an $80 million to $100 million campaign for Bing, the search engine, and Wolfram|Alpha already shows a new approach to a new kind of knowledge-based computing, it is clear SEO in the future will progress at the same rate as SE' do. That means a lot of work for SEO Freelancer. As grandpa Brecht had been told: "Learn to learn that to learn". And don't forget to specify your Twitter on your business card.
Freelancers are increasingly micro-entrepreneurs, building small business and brands, seizing new opportunities to reach previously inaccessible customers and clients, and adding tremendous value to local communities and the nation’s economy along the way.
