GenY have grown up with rich-media and have a significant difference in attitude from the Gen X. People will want to create and communicate and do this quickly and without “due process” Authoring tools will need to support mashups, but I suspect that tools themselves need to be created as a mash-up of tools.

Some lower-end, PPT + Audio tools will do well with none winning huge shares of the marketplace.
