After more than four decades since its beginning, the Internet is still one of the greatest things that humans ever invented. There was nobody back then that could have said what the future of the Internet would look like in forty years, and there is nobody now that can surely envision where the Internet will be in ten years from now. After all these wonderful new things that appeared over the years, is there anything left to discover?
The revolution brought forward by the Internet is maybe the biggest the world has experienced and is still experiencing. All the people that utilize the Internet, one way or another, are making this revolution constantly more spread and developed. Even if it is the smallest thing, like adding a comment on a website, one person is contributing to the constant transformation of the Internet.
With all these new extraordinary and marvelous features that appeared over the years, is there a place for major discoveries or changes in the years to come? Some might think there is nothing else that can be modified or added. But the human mind is a strange device and it appears to have infinite reserves of creativity. So everyone should be prepared for major revolutions waiting to be revealed from time to time.
Things are always in motion in this domain and some new features are waited by everyone, while others appear out the blue. One major development could be related to the integration of the net in every aspect of daily life. Practically, from rocket science to ordering food and from medicine to developing a new personality online.
The next revolution that is about to take place is the physical means used to connect with the Internet. Every now and then, more and more complex devices are being developed, so everybody can go online from the most unusual places. The mobile platforms and other contraptions are merely the start in this race to offer new ways to connect.
A revolution that everybody is waiting anxiously is the constant increase in speed and accessibility. The speeds are higher than ever thought they could be, and more and more areas across the world gain access. Through the constant development of satellite technology, it can be accessed from remote areas.
The interaction with the online environment or with other users of the Internet could change completely in the future. This is one of the most recent revolutions and it is only beginning. We could theoretically interact with the various feature of the internet only by saying or thinking what we want to do.
It will continue to grow and transform, and although we could continue without it, we should be happy that it is part of our lives. The future of the Internet may be unknown, but of one thing we can be sure. There will definitely be a future.
