Google Predicting Next Ten Years of the Internet

While celebrating its 10th year anniversary this month, Google reflects on the "enormous impact" that the Internet has had on people's lives around the world. "It has changed politics, entertainment, culture, business, health care, the environment and just about every other topic you can think of," says Google in its recent blog postings related to "Google at 10”.

In today's blog post, Chad Hurley, CEO and Co-Founder, YouTube (acquired by Google) says: "Today, 13 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and we believe the volume will continue to grow exponentially. Our goal is to allow every person on the planet to participate by making the upload process as simple as placing a phone call… In ten years, we believe that online video broadcasting will be the most ubiquitous and accessible form of communication. The tools for video recording will continue to become smaller and more affordable. Personal media devices will be universal and interconnected. Even more people will have the opportunity to record and share even more video with a small group of friends or everyone around the world."

The effect of computing on the history of mankind Alessandro Vesely  –  Sep 25, 2008 5:03 AM PST

Some times I hear statements about replacing paper documents with their electronic counterparts. Although the advent of computing is often compared to, say, cars, or telephones, considering that it will eventually subvert the role of writing gives a much broader perspective: The advent of writing has been very relevant in the history of mankind.
