Think back on what the Internet was like 10 years ago. There was no Facebook, obviously, or YouTube or Wikipedia—the two forces that simultaneously help you pass and fail your classes. Sites that we now take for granted were still being thought up in dorm rooms and in Palo Alto.
The changes go deeper than that, though, as this great infographic from Bestedsites shows. Over the past decade, the Internet has grown in a way we're just now comprehending. In 2002, we surfed the web 46 minutes a day. Today, that number is four hours. What will the number be in 2022? Similarly, in 2002, Blockbuster and Tower Records were thriving businesses. Now, Internet competition has run them out into bankruptcy. What industries also won't be around in 10 years?
If Moore's Law also applies to the Internet, and technology capabilities is doubling every two years, what will the 2022 version of this infographic have in store?
