I am a big fan of the internet and i often ask myself whether there will be anything else, in our generation, that will come and upstage the internet.
I think the internet has bestowed on the human beings unparalleled capacity and opportunities that would have been impossible to think of, years ago. Today, the world is so interconnected in such a way that it is impossible to see how our generation would survive without the internet.
When i read, of course on the internet, about mobile operators in India receiving letters from the governemnt giving them a deadline to put in place monitoring capability for BlackBerry Messenger and secured enterprise e-mail services, i get amazed at the power of companies, hitherto not in a position to challenge states. Most of these commucation has been enhanced by the internet.
I submit that nothing as massive as the internet will come, in this century, unless God himself!!!
