Sometimes I’d like to peek into the future. Just out of curiosity. How will the internet look like in the future? Will we have a facebook desktop? Will Facebook be the next search giant? Or will our machines work on a Google OS? Or maybe we will all be working on Google tablets and desktops will only be for designers and developers. Or will Amazon laugh at both Facebook and Google and keep growing and growing. Will Microsoft still exist? Will Apple be able to maintain it’s status?
Or maybe there will be something completely new, invented by a new brand. A new shining star. A game changer. Maybe we won’t use HTML based websites anymore and we will have a complete new set of standards. More flexible, even more user focused. Web 2.1? Or will internet marketing take over and steer the web to a more ad based platform? Will internet marketing own the internet? Will the fight over the user’s attention escalate into an internet war?
Wouldn’t you want to know? Are you not curious about how it would look like in for example 5 years, or even 10 years. I know I do. Look 10 years back and see how much has changed. Don’t you just love the internet?
