I found an interesting article today on yahoo news. Apparently the people who invented the Internet want to scrap the one we have and build a brand new one. Hmmmm….I wonder if this blog will be somewhere else?
They say it will be a new platform that will run parallel to the current one in use, until at sometime, it will completely replace it. Does that mean all current domains will no longer be valid, that Google will have to start all over again with new page rankings, or will we have to pay for use of the Internet. I don’t think the founders ever thought it would become the giant it is right now, nor be free. Maybe they want to be paid for their invention, or maybe the government is lobbing for policing abilities?
Only time will tell and I am sure there will be tons of debate over this issue. Who knows how this will effect online real estate sites. Maybe a virtual tour will actually be “virtual”, with clients literally walking through someones home online. That would be pretty cool! Hopefully Google Earth will be able to zoom all the way to that ant hill in your back yard. Who knows what else will arrive for us to fiddle with. Check back in 2010, then wait till 2015 to find out. See you then!
