Name: Bill

From: Utah

Bio: Internet User

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Technology

Headline: It Will be All-Encompassing

Nutshell: The internet will soon be so integrated into our lives that we won't be able to live without it.

Vision: There are many products already in development that rely on a constant connection to the internet and that will affect our lives dramatically. There are bags that check the internet for weather predictions and then, if neccesary, make sure you packed your umbrella. There could be fridges that check to see if you are out of milk, and orders it automatically. We will continue to rely more and more on the internet so that it will become an integral part of society.
