I'll take crystal ball for $500 Alex! We are still so early in the evolution of the internet that the original concept of the "World Wide Web" will soon seem... well... quaint. The internet is less a web of interconnected pages and more a network of interconnected people and data.
We don't just browse anymore, we google, we blog, we tweet, and we read. We used to have handles and avatars, now we use our real names as "friends" with a very vivid digital reputation following us around. We live, work, and die in the cloud.
Speakers at the Future of Web Design conference in New York were recently asked "what's dead on the web". They see the demise of static websites, flash, and the web itself. That last one sounds weird but is so on the money! The word "Web" doesn't really cover it anymore.
