Can you narrow that down a bit? Trends in general?

Trends in fashion? Entertainment? Architecture? Political thought? Social mores? Agricultural practices?

Who's your audience?

Slightly off-topic, but not totally...

The trend right now? That totally suckered me in? This internet thing that makes you need an invitation! I guess it's been going on for a few years (maybe more), but I just caught on.

I didn't really go for the social network invites (Google Wave, Google+), but with the mystery, and needing an invitation, I was kind of curious...

But Spotify (Pandora meets iTunes) got me. Just seeing a few people talking about it, and not really knowing what it was made me want it! It just dawned on me that that's a pretty good gimmick to get attention on an already saturated market. And all it was was an email - I'm pretty sure they invite anyone that gives them an email...

(Sorry if there's already a Spotify thread - I've been busy lately...)
