Headline: All things will be connected
Nutshell: Everyone will be connected to the internet (and therefore all communications and information) during their waking hours.
Vision: People will be wirelessly connected to the internet during their waking hours. Each person will have 3 or more gadgets that form a local area network. An ear piece will enable person-to-person discussions, but also person-to-internet discussions where you can verbally query information services. A wireless display will allow web surfing, viewing of videos, or video conferencing at all times.
