The Internet in 10 Years

emergentfutures:

2022 is a long way off, but key digital developments are already in hand. The current explosion of mobile connectivity will surely exert an influence 10 years from now. Desktops and laptops — even tablets — may be hardware of the past, as we access the information stream using voice, gesture, and retinal displays.
