I post this not so much because I agree with it, but because it’s another perspective. The “fact” that Internet traffic will be pushing 44 exabytes/month by 2012 fails to take into account that 15 exabytes of this will be 1080p, 3-D cat videos.
“The Internet of Things” — the new flying car of early 21st-century marketing.
And then there’s the last part: “The Internet Will Attract More Hackers” which, in the context of this infographic, is apparently a very bad thing. I suppose that’s one way to look at it. They fail to mention (or perhaps they don’t realize) that these hackers account for a very small percentage of people who self-identify as hackers, most of whom just want to learn stuff and have no interest in screwing with your infrastructure. Incidentally, these are the people you’re going to be calling at 3am when your site goes down, after it gets attacked by the other hackers.
I prefer to rephrase it as “The Internet Will Attract More People Who Want to Understand Technology” — I suspect that’s closer to the truth.
What do you think?
