General Motors kicked off the New Year -- and their 100th anniversary -- with the GMnext global dialogue this morning, an interactive online event in which they asked media members their opinion on what should be next in the automotive industry. What does the world want to see in the future in terms of cars?

GM's designers were available in the live chat to answer questions and listen to feedback and tips on topics such as green energy, sustainable personal transportation and the automotive industry in developing markets.

"We're starting our second century at a time of fundamental change in the auto industry," GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner said of the global dialogue. "We'll use GMnext to introduce some of our ideas for addressing critical issues concerning energy, the environment and globalization. In the process, we also hope to spark a broader, global discussion on these important topics."
