Discussing the future

|
Aqui. Achei esta discussão bastante interessante. Deixo aqui para pensarem.

Last week AT&T announced that the Internet will run out of bandwidth by 2010. Do you think people will care more about the "death of the internet" or Global Warming?

Here is the full article.

Do you think there will come a day when there will be mandatory "internet bandwidth rationing" like water rationing when there is a drought?

Or do you think a quasi government agency will step in a institute some kind of bandwidth regulations?

Or could providers start charging by the kilobyte of bandwidth used?

Why is AT&T the only provider out there saying that the sky is falling? They have apparently committed to investing over $19 Billion into upgrading the infrastructure. The article states it will require approx $130Billion so where's the rest coming from?

Is the mostly a US based problem or a WorldWide problem? I can't see how it really affects people with little to no internet access to but entire Corporations here in the US have built on the Internet as it's sole source of customer contact; how will companies like Amazon, YouTube, Etrade, Linkedin Etc continue to run if they loose internet access or it slows down so much it's like working on a 28K modem again? I doubt their users will put up with increasing wait times for pages to load.

Why isn't there a huge cry from the Web Development community for better video compression standards, smaller graphic files, more efficient site development to decrease bandwidth needed to use/browse a site etc?

Besides laying a whole bunch of fiber in the ground what other technologies can be utilized that could help offset this issue?

A lot of questions I know but I don't see this getting a whole lot of media attention so either they have their head in the sand or it's getting buried by other "more newsworthy stories.


These are mostly retorical questions and I'm just hoping to act as a conduit to open up the topic for a discussion. And I think it's a pretty important topic. Esp for those of us that make their living on the internet.
