"This article explains why much of the next generation of software may be server-based, what that will mean for programmers, and why this new kind of software is a great opportunity for startups. It's derived from a talk I gave at BBN Labs in Cambridge, MA, earlier this year." - "The Other Road Ahead", Summary Version here http://www.larryblakeley.com/Articles/internet_future/paul_graham_summary200109.htm (3,591 word count); Full Text Version here http://www.larryblakeley.com/Articles/internet_future/paul_graham200109.txt - "remember to right click, then save to desktop" (12,080 word count), Paul Graham, September 2001

Dr Mockapetris came up with the DNS system 21 years ago while he was a scientist on the Arpanet project, part of Darpa (US Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects Agency), which provided the basis of the net.

"Ten years from now, we will wonder how it was so hard to find things on the network too," he told BBC News Online. "At best we are at the Bronze Age, we are not even at the Iron Age stage in the network."

Searching and finding people are certainly the two areas that still need to develop further, according to Dr Mockapetris, and replacing numbers with web addresses will help that, he says. At best, the world is only halfway through the development of technology, he says."It was fun to be in on the Stone Age. But what comes next is even better." - "Net pioneer predicts web future" http://www.larryblakeley.com/Articles/internet_future/web_pioneer_prediction.htm, By Jo Twist, BBC News, June 23, 2004.


"Arpanet was designed so people could share applications, not information. The idea was that I could sit in my office in UCLA and log on to use some program running on some big supercomputer across the country that was less powerful than your wristwatch probably is. But e-mail turned out to be the killer app, not application sharing. Now we're moving back -- and forward -- toward sharing applications." - "The Unfolding Saga of the Web", Michelle Delio's interview of Dr. Stuart Feldman, IBM's resident visionary and leader of Big Blue's Internet Technology division, http://www.wired.com/news/infostructure/0,1377,63419,00.html?tw=wn_story_page_prev2, 02:00 AM May. 12, 2004 PT
