 What the Internet will look like in 10 years

Check out "Imagining the Internet," [PDF] an examination of the potential future of the Internet. Nearly 1,300 technology pioneers participated by responding to a survey posing questions about the effects of the internet on a wide range of topics, as well as giving their comments and impressions. Those predictions are also indexed into a searchable database. Here are the report's major findings:
  1. A broad-ranging survey of technology leaders, scholars, industry officials, and interested members of the public finds that most experts expect attacks on the network infrastructure in the coming decade. Some argue that serious assaults on the internet infrastructure will become a regular part of life.
  2. The internet will be more deeply integrated in our physical environments and high-speed connections will proliferate – with mixed results.
  3. In the emerging era of the blog, experts believe the internet will bring yet more dramatic change to the news and publishing worlds. They predict the least amount of change to religion.
  4. Experts are both in awe and in frustration about the state of the internet. They celebrate search technology, peer-to-peer networks, and blogs; they bemoan institutions that have been slow to change.
  5. These survey results and written commentary from experts add to a growing database of predictions and analysis from trendsetters about the impact of the internet.

Well I will wait and see what these dreams may hold since the BushCo bunch want to start taking control of the Internet. I am looking for the stories/info on that now. The Thought Police are on the way.

Will post findings.

How long before laws passed to "protect" us like the Patriot Act are turned against a free and open communication tool like the Internet? "Sweeping powers" sounds more ominous than reassuring.
