Blogging boom will reach stagnation in 2007

According to a recent article on iTWire the blogging boom will reach it’s peak point in 2007 and level out.

The blogging phenomenon is set to peak in 2007 and then level out at around 100 million, predicts analysts Gartner Group.

The web is littered with 200 million abandoned blogs, according to Gartner fellow Daryl Plummer, after bloggers have run out of things to say.

“A lot of people have been in and out of this thing,” Plummer said. “Everyone thinks they have something to say, until they’re put on stage and asked to say it.”

Gartner’s crystal ball also predicts Vista will be the last major release of Microsoft Windows, with the next generation of operating environments to be more modular and incrementally updated. The analyst group also predicts, by the end of 2007, 75 per cent of enterprises will be infected with targeted, financially motivated malware that evaded their traditional perimeter and host defenses.
