Weekend Discussion

Friday May 5th, 2000

Has the Web revolution just begun? Or is the Web already in a phase of decreasing returns? Are the Web's possibilities boundless, or nearing exhaustion?

Are you still having fun? Is the Web a new learning experience every day? Or are you overwhelmed (or underwhelmed) with new standards, new programming paradigms, new letters like 'i', 'e', and 'x'? Is the Web still your friend? Or is it the monkey on your back?

#9 Only just begun

Trying to gauge the Internet's potential is like looking at your 2-year-old and trying to figure out what he/she will want to do with his/her life. It's a technology just beginning to start multimedia convergence in this world, and broadband being widespread will be a big part of that. In two years you won't even recognize the Internet. It has barely begun to show, much less fill, its potential.

I will say I'm getting tired of the "dial-up" Internet, right now pages are made specifically to be fast to d/l and that stifles a lot of innovation.
