Robert X. Cringley has had some interesting insights. In this article, he takes a long term view of Internet growth. He touches on growth histories of previous technologies and, in doing so, provides a useful new frame for the discussion on network neutrality. Focussing on television, he considers likely technology trends into the future.
Do you agree with Cringley's analysis? Do you think the future is in distributed content, the way he does? How would you do DRM effectively in that context (assuming you think it will be necessary in future)? How about resource finding?
