The Internet is for Everyone
by noteworthy at 6:45 pm EST, Mar 7, 2008

Vint Cerf, circa 2002:

The Internet is for everyone.

How easy to say - how hard to achieve!

How have we progressed towards this noble goal?

As high bandwidth access becomes the norm through digital subscriber loops, cable modems and digital terrestrial and satellite radio links, the convergence of media available on the Internet will become obvious. Television, radio, telephony and the traditional print media will find counterparts on the Internet - and will be changed in profound ways by the presence of software that transforms the one-way media into interactive resources, shareable by many.


The Internet is for everyone - but it won't be if it isn't affordable ...

The Internet is for everyone - but it won't be if Governments restrict access to it ...

I hope Internauts everywhere will join with the Internet Society and like-minded organizations to achieve this, easily stated but hard to attain goal. As we pass the milestone of the beginning of the third millennium, what better theme could we possibly ask for than making the Internet the medium of this new millennium?
