GeekSpeak – is there life after Google?

This week we will discuss the upcoming changes in the structure and culture of the internet.  The internet is only about 35 years old and it is not as solid as you might think.  The geeks who built the net began to feel about 20 years ago that it was taking a wrong turn. The internet we have now is controlled by just two companies.  That was not the original dream.

Changes are coming though, and the internet may be a free place again, an internet ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’. How will this work out?  Will we really see the end of Google?

What changes do you hope for?  Are there any changes that you are afraid of?  What will the internet be like in 10 years?  Come to GeekSpeak to find out.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any suggestions for future subjects.
