How and why the Technologies we are developing for Future of Internet. The principles on which they are based are still business oriented.

The data is dead. All data is dead !! The data must be empowered in such a way that best, relevant, interactive data can combine, modify to create an effective, efficient content. Purpose must not be lost in money making marketing.
Data must reach its users not the other way around.
Data Empowered can e done by adding parameters - dynamic tags to the data, every sentence and every word, anything everything. And then based on what parameters user calls he has the data needed - best, ultra-relevant and interactive for maximum efficiency and effective learning.

  • Sep 30 2012: Inputs will be made and more freedom of expression will be there, just it will be much more effective and effecient that we have to do it only when required , sometimes when we don`t need it but have to because technology isn`t that far yet.
    The data empowered is the background but the user interfaces and devices are just another face of the challenge for technology. No websites are needed actually only one thing we need the data . No visits to websites, websites are like graphical databases of a company but we need not to visit them , we just need the data on our screen like the Pages of a Book that contains everything we need. That`s what EOS is all about.

    I think the user must at least make some inputs or else it would hinder our freedom of expression/usage of the internet. However, I think what you were talking about is that we shouldn't do all the dirty work ourselves, it's the platform that should search for all the relevant information for us efficiently through one single search query or magic button. To that, I agree.

    And I also think that we've been heading towards the direction of Semantic Web, where everything is encoded by a standardized protocol. This is good because it also allows for people to easily develop applications on mobile devices and such. People have also said that the internet will become more personalized to each individual user. This is cool but it can also limit the openness of the internet, if certain info is filtered out only for a specific person.

    Then as for what device we're gonna use the internet on, I think mobile internet is going to be the hot thing. India is a huge market for phones and in maybe 10 years from now, using the internet on their phones will be the mainstream. And because of such a heavy usage of internet on phones, web designers would need to find newer and better ways to design mobile versions of sites. There would REALLY need to be a focus on performance and minimalistic design.

    Tablets will also become the new mainstream just because of how popular they are with kids. And once I'm able to write an entire essay or program some applications on a tablet, that's when I know I will switch to a tablet.

    And finally, there was a cool device called the Google Chromebook. This was basically turning Google Chrome into the entire user interface of the OS. Instead of file systems, you have Google Drive. Instead of desktop applications, you have Chrome Apps. It is by its core, a device of the internet.
