Whether you are reading this on your cell phone, laptop, desktop or whatever other device you are using, it’s still a technology gadget that will connect you to the millions of people online if you want it to. The ways we can connect with each other has skyrocketed beyond comparison the last 20 years, and it’s unlikely it will stop increasing in speed. The ways that we communicate are becoming easier, shorter and even more intuitive (sometimes), and I am sure that we will find that email will soon be obsolete to whatever is the new way of making business and friendship. However, for now, email remains as the main way of communicating longer conversations, especially business conversations.
When trying to piece together the devices that we use to connect to each other, it’s easy to see that it’s going to take a piece of paper the size of Texas to feature them all. Even if we manage to do so, we will be far from connecting them all in whatever way they use the Internet. So what do we do? Well, we do it anyway, and on a computer of course. Intel put together a really interesting infographic that lines up all the devices (breeds) that we use to connect to each other.
For the first time (I guess), we can get a clear view of how the technological infrastructure was built and to what extent it reaches out. As you can see, the numbers represented get multiplied with each major technological milestone, and it’s easy to see that we’re heading for something really interesting in the future. Whatever it will be that will beat the Internet will be major, and even though I can’t imagine what that will be right now, it’s still exciting to know that we always come up with something to beat the previous technology. What do you think will be the next big thing in technology that will top the Internet?
