i just dont think thats possible...
think about it, the internet was created so that there really is no limit, because its created by the people, kinda.
i'm not an internet expert, but since the price of servers are dropping, and storage space is increasing, you could just go out and buy a huge amount of space for really cheap.
and i've read articles somewhere, that some scientists are trying to create internet 2.0, but i dont think that will happen, and it seems ridiculous.
point in case, internet will be here forever.
the internet is such a dynamic place that claiming these things is a bit ridiculous.
80% of all usage will be video? doubtful unless thats the delivery method for TV by that time, which it won't.
In case of what?
just closing the case. ;-0
of fire. or full internet.
storage and content aren't an issue. that will be there, and continually growing, yes.
the problem is with the bandwidth and infrastructure in place to deliver that content.
Storage space I don't think is the problem, I think he's referring to the lines that carry the data across the country/world. These will reach their capacity.
Edit: beat me to it, PlaceofDis
IPv4 will run out of addresses by 2011.
I think they can try to reclaim some, weren't wide swaths given out early on to large universities/corporations?
from what i know the speed of fiver optics are only growing, and i know for a fact that they can reach up to speeds of 400 mb/s, its just the hardware that can't handle it, and they will eventually fix that.
It's not so much that, it's the limitation of the number of addresses which can be assigned, as well as the issue of actually implementing the hardware.
Hasn't this been said almost every year for a decade now....?
can't new ip addresses be formed, or just more dots and numbers?
or is it not that simple?
yes, fiber optics would be great. the problem, though, is getting it laid out and running throughout the whole country since it requires new lines.
this is actually a very real problem in the US where broadbrand speeds are slower than most everywhere else, which i think is due in part to how spread out we are and just how much line is actually needed to run.
IPv6 has been around for a long time, but hasn't seen much take up.
ipv6, 18 quintillion adresses, sorted
As long as there's pr0n, the internet will find a way to survive.
That, or the more "traditional". both are good.
Agreed, whatever pushes your buttons
Sounds to me that since it will take $55billion to upgrade the infrastructure that they will try to start putting taxes on the internet. There has been talk for some time on how to tax ppl for surfing the web.
Another way for big corporate to get more money.
it would be impossible, there would be so many flaws
Not saying it will work, i just know that there has been talk about it in congress and around big business.
