  3. 3. Future Internet as a Critical Infrastructure
  4. 4. Internet 2020 “ The virtual world removes all barriers of human limitation; you can be anyone you want to be instead of being bound by physical and material limitations. That allows people to be who they naturally are, freed of any perception they may have of themselves based on their ‘real life’—it is the power of removing the barriers of your own perception of yourself.” — Tze-Meng Tan , Multimedia Development Corporation in Malaysia, a director at OpenSOS “ Tribes will be defined by social enclaves on the Internet, rather than by geography or kinship, but the world will be more fragmented and less tolerant, since one's real-world surroundings will not have the homogeneity of one's online clan.” — Jim Horning , chief scientist for information security at SPARTA Inc. and a founder of InterTrust’s Strategic Technologies and Architectural Research Laboratory “ By 2020, the Internet will have enabled the monitoring and manipulation of people by businesses and governments on a scale never before imaginable. Most people will have happily traded their privacy—consciously or unconsciously—for consumer benefits such as increased convenience and lower prices. As a result, the line between marketing and manipulation will have largely disappeared.” — Nicholas Carr , author of the Rough Type blog and “The Big Switch” “ We in the present don't think of ourselves as living in ‘cyberspace,’ even though people of a decade previous would have termed it such. Of the various forms of the metaverse, however, the majority of activity will take place in blended or augmented-reality spaces, not in distinct virtual/alternative world spaces.” — Jamais Cascio , a co-author of the “Metaverse Roadmap Overview,” a report on the potential futures of VR, AR, and the geoWeb “ The Internet is not magical; it will be utterly over-managed by commercial concerns, hobbled with ‘security’ micromanagement, and turned into money-shaped traffic for business, the rest 90% paid-for content download and the rest of the bandwidth used for market feedback.”— Tom Jennings , University of California-Irvine, creator of FidoNet and builder of Wired magazine’s first online site “ The Web must still be a messy, fabulous, exciting, dangerous, poetic, depressing, elating place...akin to life; which is not a bad thing.” — Luis Santos , Universidade do Minho-Braga, Portugal
