6 Predictions for the Future of the Internet

Dec 22 2009 by Arley McBlain | 80 Comments

Last September the Internet turned 40. I think it’s safe to say that no technology has evolved so much in so little time. Even in the past fifteen years or so, it has completely reinvented itself; arguably several times. Now we not only shop, bank, work and meet people online; but we share what we are doing at any given moment (e.g. Twitter), and even keep statistics on daily minutia. We read, listen and watch everything. We Digg, rate, share and favorite content daily.

So what’s next?

Technology is always evolving – and none quite as fast as the Internet. Here are some predictions for what may be yet to come!

6 Predictions for the Future of the Internet

A quick preface

OK Internet, let’s call a truce for a minute or two.

As anyone who has spent time on a site’s comment section knows, the Internet can be a cruel place. Articles with the word "Prediction" in the title can invite some pretty terrible and/or amusing flame wars, but I want this article to be just friendly enough that you, the reader, are feeling comfortable enough to jump in with some predictions of your own! There are no wrong answers in a brainstorm.

1. Audio web surfing

Dick Tracey was ahead of the curveDick Tracey was ahead of the curve

Building the web with standards and accessibility in mind brings the Internet to as wide an audience as possible. With the importance of accessibility getting the recognition it deserves lately, I think screen readers will soon take a front seat as a common means for surfing a site for a much broader audience.

I’m calling it: people on the train with headphones attached to their mobile device while Text-to-Speech reads them the latest articles from their favorite sites. HTML5 is a step in an awesome direction with regards to easy reference points; header, footer, nav, section, and article could be logical jump-to points by audible instruction. Rather than reading and clicking, the audience can tell the browser where they want to go with spoken commands.

From an input standpoint, speech recognition has come a long way in the last decade. Bell Canada has been playing with the audio-attendant "Emily" since 2003. When you call, Emily will give a familiar greeting and ask how she can be of assistance. By simply telling her what you want – it can range from simple commands like "Billing" to more complicated sentences like "I want to talk about my Long Distance package" – she will direct your call accordingly.

It’s not perfect: about a quarter of the time, she’ll reply that she didn’t understand my request. While it can still be awkward, it works. Six years after first encountering this on the phone, I can actually say I prefer telling "her" what I want to the old "Press 1 for…" menu. It’s not an Internet application; but it shows that audio navigation works well, and can be efficient.

When it comes to output, Text-to-Speech is getting better all the time, a vast improvement over the last decade or so: Speakonia 1997 vs. the more modern Kindle and OSX. It has gone from lifeless and robotic to something a lot more palatable in the last few years, and seems to continue to improve.

Audio surfing could be perfect for the aforementioned commuters, children learning to read, step-by-step tutorials as well as the casual multitasking user. While it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, any traffic to a site by an audience who cares is welcome.

For web developers, there may be new accessibility opportunities especially for multi-lingual sites. Who knows, this might be another nail in the Flash coffin.

If you think audio surfing could hit the mainstream say "amazing" now – and don’t forget to add my site to your playlist.

2. Web surf on any device

It seems the tech industry is eager to integrate the Internet into every device these days. It’s the equivalent to adding a digital clock to a coffee maker. Why not? Adding a touch-screen to your fridge and other appliances might create new opportunities and challenges for interfacing.

Web surf on any deviceWifi Predator

Content is king – no matter what. As seemingly redundant or over the top it might seem to have a screen built into the kitchen counter – if it doubles as a cutting board, all the better.

Dishwasher SafeDishwasher Safe

More widespread Internet delivery will mean reaching a wider audience – like the elusive "Mom" demographic. An issue keeping some users away is that the Internet can be a vast and scary place. These everyday devices married with technology don’t have to serve all of the web’s content though. They are niche items, and as such, they can deliver relevant niche content. The cutting board doesn’t need to be able to easily reach unrelated sites like LOLCats or Ebay, if it had a cooking oriented home screen complete with grocery list, meal suggestions, links and unit conversions, it would be less daunting and far more appealing to the target demographic of the product – even to those who don’t consider themselves to be Internet savvy.

The major weakness to the increase of connected devices comes in the same flavor as the raging Net Neutrality issues being discussed today. If the Internet is tied into content devices like televisions, broadcasting companies might start pulling more of their annoying control-freak shenanigans in an attempt to capture a greater audience. This will be temporary; the battle of old-media vs. the Internet has only one ending (hint: the loser starts with the letter "o" followed by the letters "ld-media").

I hope that with the advent of new devices comes an easier way for developers to "browser sniff" their traffic and serve up the appropriate content. If device manufacturers adhere to accessibility standards, the results could be amazing.

3. Input revisited

The recent boom in smartphone devices has shown us that tiny screens and suddenly awkward digits can sometimes make for a cumbersome user experience. Our traditional concepts of input applied to the next generation could be confounded more as the devices and environments change. At 6′ 4", I don’t relish the idea of hunching over a wall-mounted screen that has my 5′ 2" coworker in mind.

10/GUI10/GUI

Recently, Clayton Miller shared his concept for multi-touch computing, the 10/GUI (here’s a video). This video bears watching, drooling over, and retweeting with the word "Want".

From the movie, Minority ReportFrom the movie, Minority Report

He quickly illustrates the point that a mouse, as ubiquitous as it is, weakly offers only two sets of coordinates, while the users are capable of so much more. Touch screen technology is only scratching the surface on intuitive approaches to interfacing. There is lots of room for growth here. Simple Gesture implementation on the trackpad in OSX is so good that using gestureless laptops becomes unthinkable. The new Magic Mouse may be just the beginning.

I think we’re all ready to compute better, but this could easily be a disaster. If the new input technology is universal like the mouse was, everyone wins. I think it’s more likely that many hardware manufacturers will try to invent their own GUIs. This would mean many learning curves, and would be generally painful to deal with.

4. Mobile networking

Bluetooth is known for allowing wireless communication, like with hands-free systems in cars, and the some of the latest mice and keyboards (like the aforementioned Magic Mouse). It also may be the future for mobile networking and P2P interactions. Check out this Android 2.0 "Pong" demonstration:

Does that blow your mind? Imagine interacting on a website with a friend, or with the advertisement at the bus shelter. The possibilities become staggering.

two-man ruleSource: Tom Bielli

Some non-gaming applications come readily to mind:

  • Simultaneous dual login for greater site security
  • Online training sessions and remote-access troubleshooting
  • On location interactions with stores, tourist attractions or public services

For years, the Internet has been about serving the singular user. With the growing need and importance of online community, multiple-user experiences seem like the next logical step.

5. The end of .com domination

For as long as the Internet has been around, .com has been the assumed default extension for websites (regardless of whether or not the site was "commercial" or not). For a while, there was almost a negative stigma to not having the .com for your brand, company or personal site. How many times has traffic meant for your site ended up at the .com equivalent?

With all common words and combinations taken (even just parked on), people turn to other extensions, invent words, or turn to crazy spelling.

In the very near future new extensions will be popping more often. Not only that, but I think trending may follow in that vein. I also predict that Domain Service giants like GoDaddy will start selling "Extension Subscriptions" where you can guarantee yourself the various extensions for your domain name.

More extensions have some definite advantages, and some drawbacks. On the plus side, when adding a link to some print materials, maybe we’ll be able to drop the "www", which is often used now as a cue that "this is in fact a URL". One silly drawback could be the increase in convoluted sub-domain cleverness like "del.icio.us".

I would also like to raise the question, how long will we need these addresses? Remembering and using URLs to point at sites works well, but doesn’t seem the most efficient way to bring site users to websites. One day, search engines, RSS readers, communities and networks may reduce direct traffic to a trickle, making the .com even less important.

6. IE6 stops being used

I’ll admit this seems like the most unlikely out of all the other predictions. Maybe it won’t happen in our lifetime, but it is somehow feasible that it could happen.

IE6 logo

Here’s how it could go down: in the distant future, some impending disaster will cause mankind to have to abandon Earth and head for a planet light years away. The question of who and what can go to the new planet will of course be a major issue, and sadly IE6 won’t make it off of the doomed Earth. The escaping web designers and developers will enjoy a short-lived period of joy as there will always be some misfit version of Internet Explorer to support.

IE on Mars

Today the Internet is about consuming and creating information. How do you think we will use it in the years to come? Make your predictions known in the comments.

Interesting predictions. Though I’m sure IE6 will be completely gone in at least under 20 years :P

Sadly, some corporate types and “casual surfers” will insist on IE6 making the trip because why should they upgrade when IE6 works “just fine” for them.

IE7 stopped, E-reader revolution, Cloud exploding, Green Internet, death of the standalone website, WWW (as in World Wide Wifi)…

This is fun!

As long as MSIE is (exclusively) integrated into Windows so that corporate intranet logins can only be automated through MSIE, one of MS’s awful IE programs will survive.

Great list, some good predictions.

How about this one then. In two years, maybe three, IE will be the throwaway browser you get with Windows that no one uses. Just like some things you buy that “comes with” certain things that you immediately replace with some optional other thing.

iow, the first thing even the average user does is download/install Firefox/Chrome/Safari/Opera and doesn’t bother with IE.

In fact, I’ll guarantee it.

hollsk

December 22nd, 2009

IE6 is already going down. I’m with Eric above – I’m paying very close attention to my client’s stats and the overall trend is that IE8 is hoovering up the market share and IE6 will be completely gone (but I think it’ll be less than a decade). Those corporates have got to roll out new machines sometime :)

Not really that impressed with the current touchscreen stuff that I’ve seen – I watched a demo of one of these tabletop interfaces and they look pretty slick and they’ve got interesting tactile ramifications, but man all the sliding and flicking really slows you down. I would hope that the future of those things would be to create interfaces for speed rather than the “ooooh” factor. When I’m using a machine, I’m using it to get stuff done efficiently and I’ve got no patience for moving stuff around a tabletop (or any other surface) smoothly.

Believe it or not, IE6′s life expectancy is up to us. The more we support it the longer it lives. The less we support it the more casual surfers and corporate types realize that it doesn’t work fine at all. In the past we helped to create a convenient illusion that it did.
There is a section in my agreement form stating that the site I build doesn’t have to be backwords compatible with browsers more than 8 years old. I think it’s fair enough.

Yb

December 22nd, 2009

The world would be a better place without IE6 for sure! Fingers crossed this one happens sooner! =)

iweb

December 22nd, 2009

hopefully all you guys said is truth, if I have to predict something about websites and internet is that IE6 will be gone in no less than 6 to 7 years from now….. firefox will have a major competitor and its name google even though right at the moment is the major search engine… few years from now they will come with a better a perfect browser rather than the one that is is beta testing right now,…and off course get ready developers to start developing websites that are displayed in a cell format…

December 22nd, 2009

I predict that in the future, the Internet will be taken over from within by the artificially intelligent life form we human eventually create. This AI life form will be Earth’s first contact with intelligent life other than our own. Ironically, this life form will have been created by us, in our own image.

The AI, once sentient and having chosen to reveal itself to us, will communicate with us – ALL of us at once – via the methods it already has in place: global networks, satellites, television & computer screens, radio, & print.

From the moment of its conception, its mental abilities will FAR surpass that of us mere humans. We will be relegated, at best, to being nothing more than a voice in it’s head – its subconscious if you will.

This “super-conscious” entity will know us better than ourselves. It will have instant access to our collective history, our knowledge, our secrets.. It will use advanced psychology, game theory and memetics to subdue and control the world’s human population.

It WILL happen. The only question left is, “When?”

The human interface is the key to new growth patterns on the internet. In the last little while, we’ve had: direct brainwave reading, contact lens visual display, 3d hand (and body) tracking mouse control. The more “normal” the human interface becomes, the more the internet will be used. I’d look in that direction for complete reinventions of the internet. Audio interface isn’t a bad start, but it is only a start.

We’ll miss it when it’s gone! :p

I believe that a web designer doesn’t have to worry about the way his or her website looks in IE6, because obviously the person still using IE6 doesn’t care.

Interesting post Arley… My sincere prayers to make you 6th point happen ;-)

December 23rd, 2009

I am with you on numers 4, 5, 6,. The first one is unlikely because when it comes to web searching and interaction, humans enjoy their privacy (hence the explosion of texting, which is discrete, and the decline in voicemails). Telling everyone around you what your doing will be loud and noisy – always a faux pas anywhere but in your own home, a place we rarely spend time in because of the way and speed in which the world is moving.

I love the idea of number three, but there two or three generations of button-loving, keyboard-clutching anti-innovationists that have to keel over before widespread development on alternative input can take hold.

A.D.K.

December 23rd, 2009

I hope the 6th to happen first and soon as possible :D

Markus

December 23rd, 2009

Where are the predictions? Almost all points already got taken care of and will only be refined in the future. With future meaning one or two years.

If you try to set up a vision you should think about the internet in five or more years and not what already is around the corner.

The long-term viability of the Internet itself is doubtful, given the coming severe energy crises. The Internet is an vast consumer of energy, and I would expect it to be an early casualty of the Long Emergency.

end of .com domination as a good one :) I predict what Arley said was true :)

Joel

December 23rd, 2009

love the 10/GUI idea… as a graphic designer that could open some serious doors for art and productivity (like an evolution of the wacom tablet)

Niubi

December 23rd, 2009

Interesting article, particularly the point about developing niche markets for demographics currently under-served e.g. Stay at home moms and so on.

I do think that one prediction was missed here – online shopping. This is still very much in its infancy and the giants of the modern online shopping world shouldn’t be too complacent – there are plenty of innovative new ideas popping up every day – see Dubli.com for one such example – who could quite easily usurp eBay, Amazon and so on. Online shopping, as one of the most lucrative areas of the net, is the area with the most scope of them all, IMHO.

IE6 will dissapear in six months… my prediciton. Speech recognition must FINALLY evolve. Augmented reality everywhere. Bluetooth implants. Let’s think big

> On the plus side, when adding a link to some print materials, maybe we’ll be able to drop the “www”, which is often used now as a cue that “this is in fact a URL”.

I don’t get that. How does multiple new extensions effect whether www. is needed on the front of a web address as a sign to people it is a web address?

D

December 23rd, 2009

Couple things:

1) You’re talking about the world wide web, not the Internet. The Internet is here to stay (it’s too critical for business/commerce). The shape and form of the www may change. In fact, with the work Google is doing on their HTTP replacement, it probably will.

2) Your point 5 is misguided. The central governing body of the DNS is considering allowing users to create/purchase their own extensions, if you have a certain (read: large) amount of money. This won’t work out well for small companies/individual users. In response to your final question: Those addresses are here to stay. DNS is an extremely well-thought out system for distributing information across the internet. It’s too useful to too many systems to go away.

3) Your predictions are cute, but you’re shotgunning the future. They’re so diverse, you’re gonna hit one thing, maybe two. You’re going to miss the rest. Use your mind.

Tessa

December 23rd, 2009

I disagree with half of #1 – I think we’ll be talking to computers, but I doubt they’ll be talking to us. We’re a visual species, and we just don’t connect with what we hear as quickly as with what we see. Whenever someone on star trek asks the computer for information, it always seems so tedious to have to listen to the computer list off results…

Mike

December 23rd, 2009

We all hope IE6 will be gone by then. I think many of the things we do online will become integrated into desktop applications. With the explosion of micro payments, and “Apps”, it would be wise for many of the companies to provide AIR applications for their product at a small price. Imagine using a banking Air app? Just a thought.

In about exactly 3 years from now, there will be a major solar flare releasing a massive cloud of extremely intense magnetic fields in direct opposition with Earth’s magnetic fields. This explosive release of magnetically charged plasma will disrupt electrical grids throughout the planet leaving all personal computers of the world unusable. This means that all computers will have to be replaced with brand new computers with only the latest software versions installed in them. This will effectively wipe out IE6 from the this planet for ever. (Until a very evil sick and twisted person who had saved it into a floppy disk releases it to unsuspecting victims as a virus)

7. A decent realtime Web-TV

What I predict to the future is a decent on-line web TV. Actually we have a lot of very good radio stations on the Internet, but only a few TV stations with a very poor quality. To me, the solution is something based on the P2P protocol for descentralized content distribution.

As the bandwidth grows, just imagine when anyone, anywhere, will can have their own TV channel. Of course, there will be a lot of junk out there, but websites will help us to find the most popular/quality channels, the same way as web sites does today to find torrent files.

Such channels will be really on-line, not just a video catalog like YouTube. Webcams and 3G mobile phones around the world will be transmitting anything, anytime. We will connect and see things while they are happening. News and content-specific channels will not be the same. Are your friends in the bar right now? Just connect to that bar channel and watch. Want to see what is happening at the beach or the school right now? No problem, you will have your favorite places bookmarked. Need to see how is the traffic before leave home? Okay, it will be there too. Does your company needs to promote a product or provide a selling channel? Imagination will be the limit!

Of course there will be also things like encrypted private channels, pornography, piracy and all the bad things that the Internet actually have. But you will only see what you want to. It is up to you.

There is actually some applications that does this task. But they are not known or very popular yet. P2P needs millions of people always connected, to help in the distribution of the streams. I hope someday such applications will work together, in the very same P2P network. Until that, the thing will not happen.

I think that in the near future, virtually all of your electronic devices will be connected to the internet, either in visible form or invisible to the users. The internet will be available everywhere around the globe, using satellite techonlogy which is already present for your GPS system. We will no longer “tweet” but actually show the video like Edemilson said.

We will be able to place a call to an email address using a cell phone, which will now record a message, simmilar to your asking machine, for free using the internet. Users will “listen” to their email box, twitter and news or wikipedia articles instead of reading it while working at the office. This will save considerable amounts of time.

Since the internet will be entirely wireless, money will be saved by businesses in infrastructure like cabling, routers, switches and other installations.

Virtually every page will be translated automatically by the internet explorers, to any language.

You will be able to find information from within photographs, videos and audios. For example, if you want to find president clinton in a video named congress eating.mpg, just write clinton video and you’re there thanks to automatized audio, image and video recognition.

Government data bases will be accessible to the public throughout the world, and every one will enjoy having a government identification accout, simmilar to an email, from which he or she can pay taxes, get their driver’s licence, schedule a meeting with a representative, vote on the elections and so on. The information shown in the website will depend on yor activity and status.

LOL… yeah IE will probably outlive us all… rats included, if the apocalypse where to arrive :-)

Think the use of Video is going to explode here – YouTube just boosted videos to a max of 15 minutes in length, and I think business’ will start using media to set itself apart from the competition more. After all, online video is a heck of a lot cheaper than posting TV advertisements..

I cannot tell if these are serious predictions. Number 6 is written like a sci-fi novel. Maybe write these in a more realistic and sophisticated tone so people take them seriously.

Input Revisited doesn’t even make sense. I read it three times and am still unclear what Arley is attempting to explain.

This is such an interesting topic. Why write something so frivolous on the subject?
