Who could have predicted how widely and wildly the Internet would evolve when it was conceived more than 45 years ago?
In a relatively brief time, it’s grown from a few connected computers at select universities that only a handful of individuals knew how to operate to a globally connected network that has become engrained in the daily life of the vast majority of the planet’s population.
Though the Internet has improved upon a great many things, none is more dramatic than communication. Today the Internet or its underlying technologies facilitate many of the methods that people use to communicate, at least in some part. But evolution is dynamic, and while the advances in communication facilitated by the Internet have been tremendous, there is always room for growth and improvement.
In fact, there is a significant possibility that the augmentation of the Internet through the Internet of Things will advance global communication even further.
