Kevin Kelly, speaking at one of the TED conferences, takes a stab at predicting the next ten years of the web. The video runs about 20 minutes. Begins with the first lesson of the web:
Have to get better in believing the impossible.
And his summary has a nice mystical feel, for those that lean that way:
There is only One machine.
The web is its OS.
All screens look into the One.
No bits will live outside the web.
To share is to gain.
Let the One read it.
The One is us.
