Name: Brandy

From: Tennessee

Bio: Internet User since 1994

Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People

Topic: Communication

Headline: Internet: The Society

Nutshell: One day, every household will be more likely to have DSL Internet connection in home, than a phone.

Vision: I believe that one day it will be rare to find a home with a telephone in it, and no internet or computer access. It will be more commonplace to have a computer with dsl internet connections, most even wireless, that families use to communicate with friends, family, etc. Phones themselves may even become extinct, with the population relying more on cell phones and internet terminals to communicate.
