Revolution is coming... maybe!

Yesterday I had a good discussion with people from the hub about the way I feel that something is going to change radically with the internet in the next 2-5 years. I think the source for this feeling is my belief that the internet is there, that in technical terms almost everything I ever wanted to create for the internet now exists.

This can only mean two things - technology will continue to become modularized enabling more and better-fitting solutions to problems to be achieved more cheaply or the way humans interact with technology will change so that the symbiosis of human and computer will become more efficient, not by technology better fitting the needs of humans but with humans better learning how to adapt to technology. In reality both are likely to happen but I think the major change will be in the realisation for the need for humans to adapt to the new world of technology which is a field which barely exists at the moment. IT will shift to be a small part about creating solutions with technology and a large part in changing human behaviour to better use the technological tools available. I want to be part of this revolution.
