What Will the Internet Look Like in 2050?

Date TBA


Juan Benet

Protocol Labs

A global computer-based communication network has fundamentally changed our social, cultural, and political landscape over the past 30 years. There has been no previous communication revolution of this speed or intensity. Consequently, this communication tool gives us the power to completely restructure our entire existence, both on an individual and collective level. As inescapably pervasive as the Internet's emergence has been, Juan will situate its emergence within the context of our technological evolution, and try to pontificate its potential future development in the 21st century.
