  1. JVM is not just for Java anymore.
  2. JavaScript is not just for JavaScript anymore.
  3. No code is an island.
  4. The growth of the “walled garden.”
  5. Openness retreats.
  6. Bandwidth is no longer free.
  7. Energy is no longer free, either.
  8. Traditional education fades from relevance.
  9. Accuracy fades as scalability trumps all.
  10. Real parallelism begins to get practical for all.
  11. GPUs trump CPUs.
