Silly vegetable, you're forgetting full-on virtual reality as
depicted way back in the early 80s in Gibson's novels, long
before a real web actually existed, including feedback for all the senses.
Gamers already have tactile feedback, which will easily spread more to the
web, and then there is teledildonics, which has been around in rudimentary
form many years.  I don't know if we're in for a new golden age, but we
are certainly in for a bloody, itchy, smelly, squishy one.

Yep, censorship and regulation.

Pre 1990s there was no Web.

1452, the first book was printed. Had they come to the end of
what books can promise?

868CE is the first _surviving_ printed book (a copy of the Diamond
Sutra). Gutenberg just changed how they were printed, he didn't invent
printing or printed books.

Perhaps the intelligent web? An artifical intelligence in the web, which
takes over the world...

is some truth to what 'the voices' have been telling me...

## Re: The next new thing on the web?

Now that's the most ridiculous and far-fetched suggestion yet. I can assure
you there will never be intelligence on the web, and especially not in
A.W.W.

Oh, I see what you mean. Now this is a real possibilty. It will start as
crime-prevention spider/crawler designed to find people who are trading in
obscene materials/not paying enough tax, but will quickly realise that it's
job would be simpler if the human race was extinguished.

Don't worry though, most regular members of A.W.W. can probably get a
discounted foil helmet. Nevertheless, I think we should get Linda Hamilton
on-board just in case.

I think the web will start to move into every crack of everyone's lives, not
that it's not already there for some.  I think as speeds start increasing,
folks will find ingenious ways of using the Internet, I mean who thought
and videos from the Internet.   IN the days of dial-up this idea would've
been nuts.

I honestly think what comes in 2010 and beyond we can't even imagine right
now.  I bet folks will do more remote-control type stuff as the speeds start
getting faster, example being you have one person playing piano on one site
but robotic arms mimicing the movements on a remote piano 1000 miles away.
Also with wifi becoming more available, I think there are things we're just
now starting to see that are possible with always-on anywhere connectivity.

It's scary in a way...  When I first touched the Internet in 1993 it was
more of a way to communicate with friends and family over email and IRC,
plus a fun alternative to BBSing.  I mean I remember hitting simtel.com via
no waiting for a free line.

Times they are a changin', but only time will tell if it's all for the good.

The trends you noted are all about how our senses interpret information.
There's only 5 senses and I don't foresee a major technology in the
immediate future for transmitting touch and smell unless it's in the virtual
reality realm. But evolution of the net isn't only about new ways to
perceive information, it's also about new means of delivering and using that
info.

"Internet Everywhere" isn't a reality yet. New requirements for the delivery
and presentation of data need to happen to make it work. Probably involving
new types of information. Think of what you might like to have in a net
enabled automobile. Would you use info to continuously monitor the vehicle
mechanicals?; Place an order at the Burger Doodle drive through?; Start the
car on a cold morning?; Monitor you and keep you awake?

And don't forget that they're putting electronic circuitry in a fabric used
for clothing now. What info would you like delivered to your shirt and how
would it need to be presented?
