Citing Three Predictions for 2008

Economist.com put out an article entitled Technology in 2008, Three Fearless Predictions. Fearless might be stretching it a bit, but there are some interesting concepts brought forth. Their major categories are:

  1. Surfing Will Slow
  2. Surfing Will Detach
  3. Surfing and Everything Else Computer Related, Will Open

The first ties into some previous blogs of mine, especially Degrading of the Internet and The Broadband Delimma, Broadband Delimma Part 2, and Broadband Delimma Part 3.

To balance all of this arm waving on the potential for a slowdown of the Internet, see The Myth Of The Bandwidth Crunch Just Won’t Die from techdirt.com.
