New Internet in Sight

I came across this article today and thought it was interesting. We have been talking so much about how the Internet and Web 2.0 technologies have been transforming business, causing technological revolutions every so often, and it seems many think that the Internet itself is going to undergo a revolution in the near future.

Basically, the article talks about how many researchers are in favor of scraping the current Internet and redesigning it from the ground up to accommodate society's future technical needs. They caution that it won't be a smooth transition, but it may not be any more difficult than the move from tradition telephone service to VoIP. I'm just glad researchers have finally figured out all of our future technical needs...
