We can only predict what the internet will be like in 2015. We’ll only know what it will really be once we get there.
The project Imagining the Internet by Elon University publishes a variety of possibilities what online life will be like by the year 2025.
You won’t even know it’s there!
The internet by 2025 will be so pervasive that you won’t even know that it is there. It will be part and parcel of your daily routine. Probably the only time you will think about the internet again is if you suddenly get disconnected. And a minute of disconnection will seem like eternity to you.
The internet is the new educational institution!
By 2025, the internet may as well replace school teachers, but that is probably a foretelling that we do not want to happen. Teachers are still very important in society, but the internet will also be able in educating people with the fountain of information it can hold.
Over time, academic resources will be available online, thus making the opportunity for learning equal among people in all nations. Access to human knowledge is the best gift the internet can give today and in the future.
More than ever, the internet will break geographic limitations
We can communicate with family, friends and colleagues regardless of what part we are in the world. The internet will truly diminish geographic boundaries that causes us to limit the ways we get in touch with one another. When internet technologies continue to advance, communication lines are positively affected along the way.
However, it can make us lonely too
Once we get used to communicating with people digitally, we may fail to realise how superficial and unsustainable our connections are in actuality. Personal encounters definitely make us more human and are irreplaceable.
But right now…
We should remember what a joy it is that today, we already have a variety of options to experience the internet in a fast and stable way. We have come a long way from dial-up to advanced broadband technologies designed to make our lives better, make our communication lines more open and more.
