We’ve Only Begun to See the Internet’s Capabilities

I'm no "futurist" but I do find myself daydreaming about the future of the Internet and communications. I'm convinced that we will continue to see strides forward in sending, and receiving, massive amounts of data to and from computers, to the point where all our media will be streamed and will have incredibly interactive functionality, complete with some kind of holographic human interfaces on our media devices. Our computers will continue to become media centers, offering massive storage capacities and the ability to sort and generate media and data files of all types. I'm very excited to see what the state of computer technology will be in twenty years. I know how far we've come since I bought my first computer in 1987. This article portends the future of the Internet and computing. Where do you see computing and the Internet in twenty, or fifty years from now?

    This is not so much about the future of the Internet so much as a bit of history I think you might enjoy.
    The article mentions that the World Wide Web originated from CERN. Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first web server and web browser software at CERN. He wrote it on a NeXT cube, which of course ran NeXT’s operating system, NeXTSTEP. Now if you don’t know anything about NeXT and it’s products, you will want to look up the history of the company and it’s operating system. I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find what they are doing now.

    Twenty and fifty years from now, my computers (I have both Mac and PC) will still lock up from time to time. They will still do what I tell them to do, not what I meant to tell them to do. I will still have to replace them every few years.
    Or, I could be retired and sitting in a meadow by a mountain stream–enjoying God’s creation–and have no need for a computer. That sounds sort of appealing! Perhaps I should chuck them today! No, I can’t do it!
