Pew Report – Future of the Internet IV

The Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project
http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2010/Future-of-the-Internet-IV.aspx has been released. Among the questions posed in the web survey to scientists, business leaders, consultants, etc. are:

  • Will Google make us stupid?
  • Will the internet enhance or detract from reading, writing, and rendering of knowledge?
  • Is the next wave of innovation in technology, gadgets, and applications pretty clear now, or will the most interesting developments between now and 2020 come “out of the blue”?
  • Will the end-to-end principle of the internet still prevail in 10 years, or will there be more control of access to information?
  • Will it be possible to be anonymous online or not by the end of the decade?
