Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.

The 2nd chat session of the Oman IGCBP 2012 group was on the topic of the Internet in 2022.

Some points mentioned at the discussion are as follows.

The Internet will be essential in our lives and it will be part of everything we have and use such as cars, homes, A/C, security system and every piece of equipment we will own. Internet of things will increase where one cannot be able to differentiate between human and a machine.

In addition, different applications will be created in order to facilitate the E-Learning, E-health, E-banking and others. Thus, most of the people will be familiar with using the Internet especially youth and more transaction will be gone through the Internet. For sure, the coverage of the network and the bandwidth of the Internet will be way improved especially that some views believe that access to the Internet will be one of the human rights. Furthermore, other languages content will improve after introducing none Latin char for domain names.

At the same time, many challenges will be raised especially for the government to protect different rights such as privacy, consumer rights, copyrights and security.

Best Regards,

Alot can be expected looking at the speed the Internet is spreading and at what rate it is developing but chances are high that 2022 will come when some population have not tested the sweetness of Internet. The digital divide is growing proportionately to the rate of development of technology and it only leaves you wondering whether those people left behind will be able to catch up.

Unless something special is done for the uneducated masses in developing nations, I see 2022 passing with out notice.

Otherwise, on the good side of the coin, I also anticipate a better level of development as regards Internet.
