Good News Bloggers- Web Codependency!

It’s Coming!

This TED Talk outlines in an AMAZING way the first 5,000 days of the web and discusses where we’re going next. What I find exciting is that it reinforces what we’ve been talking about for some time, especially cloud computing and the future of the web, most notably that the future indicates a codependency on the internet (woo hoo, bloggers!). The alphabet is a technology we rely on and the Internet may be next… this is totally worth the 20 minutes to watch!

    Lani, wanted to thank you for introducing me to Kevin Kelly, through this post! 🙂 I have to say that 20 minutes scared me, at 1st, but I was riveted to Kevin’s explanation of the 1st 5000 days of the Internet, and even more so, by his prediction of the next 5000 days! I subscribe to his theory and it was amazing to hear it presented so eloquently…I was a fan of yours before, I am even more so now!! Thanks again!

    PS – I will be doing a “follow up” Blog to this prsentation myself, and even more on Kevin’s words in the future…I have become a big fan of his, thanks to you 🙂

    Missy, have you watched it yet or what? It’ll make you smarter, I promise! 🙂

    Eric, I’m very glad that you enjoyed Dr. Kelly’s video, he is amazing (I hope you’ll watch his other TED video). Let me know when you do a follow up, I’d love to see it! 🙂
