Information Architects Japan have posted a series on their view of the web in 2006 and their predictions for 2007. Yes, I can hear you saying, “Bored now. So has everybody else…”

You should also read The 50 loudest websites in 2006 and what made them successful (particularly for the awesome analysis diagrams) and then read their 2007 Predictions.
