07 Aug The Future of the Internet
“The Internet is just a few decades old, but in that short span of time it has experienced significant changes. It grew out of a hodgepodge of independent networks into a global entity. It serves as a platform for business, communication, entertainment and education. And you can connect to this enormous network through dozens of different devices.
What’s next? When you can call up minute trivia about the most obscure subject you can think of with a couple of taps on a smartphone screen, where else can you go? The answer isn’t entirely clear, but the possibilities are exciting.”
“In about the last 15 years, we’ve gone from a slow, dial-up, boxy version of the Internet to one that can be accessed at incredible speeds from pretty much anywhere. It’s completely revolutionized the marketing industry (among others), introducing strategies that never existed before and making a number of older ones obsolete.”
So what’s going to happen in another 15 years?
