The future of the web

I'm having coffee at the train station in Tampere, waiting for my train to Åbo and I just got hold of this survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project: The Future of Internet II. 742 experts and technology thinkers have been surveyed on what they believe the future of the Internet will be, and there seems to be a great deal of disagreement. For example, 46 % believe the transparency that comes along with the Internet is a good thing for humans, whereas 49 % disagree. According to BBC, more than half of respondents had a positive vision of the net's future but 46% had serious reservations. Oups, the train's about to leave, gotta run. The survey is found here, the BBC article here.
