The internet has a strange history, but it’s worth examining as it moves through the transition to the 21st century.
At the center of that history is the notion that the internet can function like a real network, rather than just a bunch of pipes, switches, and routers that can be controlled by an automated network.
That idea has spawned a whole new set of questions about the future of the internet, including:How does it work?
How does it move?
What are the rules that govern it?
What are the people who use it?
The internet has changed dramatically since the internet itself was created in the 1970s.
As we know from the history of the world, we are living in an era of exponential technological change, and the internet is no exception.
It’s important to understand how this happened, and how it could change in the future.
Today, we rely on the internet for the things we use, but that doesn’t mean we can forget about the internet and its applications.
We can’t live without it.
That’s why, in the next installment of Next Big Ideas, we’re looking at how we might use the internet to help us get things done in the 21h century.
