Kevin Kelly:  The Next 5,000 Days of the Web

Its crazy to think that their has only been 5,000 days of the web.

Technology has come so far, and we already are able to have satelite images of the whole earth. Now if someone were to say ten years ago that we would have the technology that we have today, would you believe it? I mean the thought of a laptop is just amazing. With free wi-fi so your able to be on the web at any time. All this amazing stuff is happening and were not amazed.

Well sense its been about 5,000 days of the web, a man by the name of Kevin Kelly talked about what will happen in 5,000 more days. Now there was a part that kind of confused me when he talked about how all the technology that we have like the internet and stuff like will all come from one machine. Now this is where I got confused. Basically he’s saying all of our cell phones and stuff will come work because of this one machine. If thats true then that machine must be an incredible reliable machine, probably the most reliable technology we have today because there will have to be no problems. I dont think Kevin Kelly did a very good job of explaining this.

The point of Kevin Kelly’s idea was to help all technology work in unity. I do agree that technology has advanced tremendously in the past 5,000 days or more which would be about 10 years. To think that everything would revolve around one machine though would kind of be rediculous.
