Where We Go From Here
Kevin Salwen on Creativity
An NPR interview this week with the two 'fathers' of the Internet, Robert Kahn and Vint Cerf (it wasn't Al Gore after all??!!), gave us a chance to hear their views on the future of the Web. You can listen to the 5-minute interview here.
The question to the pair was set up this way: Generally (but not exclusively) most people use the Internet these days to do email, read a newspaper, do a Google search or buy something on eBay; in the future, what would you add to that list?
Kahn suggested that people will learn to trust their information to the Net more, share much more personal information that way. Cerf added that he thought very large numbers of Internet-enabled devices for the home, car or to carry around would be Web-enabled, helping people with activities, social lives, entertainment systems and appliances.
That's their take (I must say I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more of a Jetsons quality to the answers). What's your prediction on the next big thing for the Web?
