How big can this web get?
A spider creates thousands of webs in its lifetime in order to survive. When it comes to the web we use in our day-to-day lives, could we survive without it?
The Internet is called the World Wide Web for a reason: it holds millions of pieces of information and grows exponentially. I turned 30 last year and I’ve seen the Internet evolve from my first 14.4kbs modem in my parents’ basement to using my iPad with WIFI on an airline 35,000 ft above the earth.
In just a few years technology has exploded and it’s hard to keep up with the next great gadget, not to mention the millions of apps and tools available to control these devices.
I believe that in the next few years three things could happen:
#1: The web will be everywhere in the world, accessible for free to all human kind.
#2: There will be a super satellite that can transmit data at never before seen speeds to millions of devices in real time. All your data, software, applications, resource and more will sit in the cloud; completely accessible from any device worldwide.
#3: We can get upgrades to our cars while we drive. Any make or model can get any feature (e.g power locks) – all you need to do is call up the dealership and pay for the upgrade using your Skywallet to activate it.
The Internet will hold more information then we can even imagine! It’s exciting to see what the future holds and to witness just how big this web can get.
What do you predict will happen with the Internet in the next 10 or 20 years?
