Headline: The Next Generation - Weaned on the Internet

Nutshell: Progress in all fields of development will explode as a generation of human data-miners communicate and share ideas in unprecedented ways.

Vision: Children raised on the Internet will only know a world where every question has an instant answer, where every friend or associate is only a click away, where every idea can be shared with the world, where every thing they ever wanted could be instantly found.

This generation will evolve to process information and develop new and innovative solutions at a pace never before imagined.
