I don't know, but I think the internet is not the future because it is the now. A lot of developments are already brought upon by the internet. Information are now disseminated through it and a lot of institutions are already using the capabilities of the internet. So I don't think it is still the future but already is the present. Some other developments must be the future in my opinion.

INternet is not only the future.. it is here and now and not going anywhere! It is here to stay and will just get more and more required. Kind of like a credit card... can't hardly do anything these days without one...internet will be the same. The USPS is nearly going bankrupt cause of online bill pay and email and "paperless".. no one uses snail mail anymore. I think we have just started the dramatic dive into internet oblivion. Everything is rather dependent on the internet and getting worse. The biggest fear should not be so much nuclear warfare....but internet lines and accessibility. Just think what all would literally "go down" if one line of internet access was cut? Major catastrophies could happen if the internet went down. Even public utilities are based on internet action...that goes down, so do our utilities! The banking service is no longer clearing houses...but E=transfers and e-banking etc. THey don't "clear" a check anymore..they just bounce your checking account number into their internet program and the cash transaction happens instantly. How many times have you gone to a store and been told you can't use your ATM card as "the system is down". "the system" is their internet program. I would even go as far as to say that the internet COULD take over the world. I mean, Obama recently had the option to "flip the switch" and shut down the internet service country wide for some reason or another. How easy it is...go to the main frame/main line and turn it off...millions and millions are connected to that main line and will be down. Better get used to it. Here to stay and just get worse and more dependent on it.

Can you note down the person who suspect this? I our all business is dependent on the internet now. Every govt. agency is using/providing online services. Every provate company has to use it. Teachers are using it, students are using it. We are using it and everybody is using it. It is a part of our life. I think it will remain like it.
