    Makes you wonder just what the next 20 years will bring.

    A brilliant site (with sources for every prediction). Even if you take some of the stuff on there with a whole bag of salt, the future is going to be much much much stranger than the present, and the relentless march of exponential technological growth means that it will be a lot more "futuristic" as well.

    In other words, if you look back at the advances since the WWW was announced in 1991 (21 years) they pale into virtual oblivion compared to what the world will/should be like in 2033 http://www.futuretimeline.net/21stcentury/2030-2039.htm

    I remember thinking in 2002/3 when I saw my first broadband fed webpage flash up after years of dial-up monotony that wow it was a real gamechanger.

    And it was... the dot-com boom really failed because the infrastructure wasn't ready for ecommerce. Within 18months many major retailers had their first online presence and the high-street has been in rapid decline ever since.

    With 100Mb+ rapid broadband I think the revolution is going to be closer to the home with pretty much everything-on-demand.

    And with IPv6 just about everything is going to have a web interface within 10yrs!

    That's if we can keep the government legislators and profiteering IP lawyers sticky fingers off things. Key to this is stopping the EU drift towards software patents. It's pretty much wrecking the US tech industry.

    Agreed. Broadband + Adsense = gamechanger for content-driven sites. Many businesses that went under in 2000/2001 could have survived/thrived if Adsense had existed then.

    Of course, the geeks amongst us would have a separate background download process, the ftp server went and downloaded what I wanted over night!

    I was with Cabletel many years ago and they offered a 2nd phone line for £5/month and had free Internet dialup, a small Linux server set as a router and was set to poll mail every 2 mins with a redial on the PPP connection giving me a more or less permanent 56K connection (actually only mid 40K due to line length). Next step was the 64K Cable Modem - genuine permanent Internet connection at home :)
