Several months ago Cisco published The Evolving Internet – Driving Forces, Uncertainties and Four Scenarios to 2025—a report done jointly with GBN which was intended as a contribution to ongoing discussions and efforts to harness the huge potential of Internet and IP networks to drive economic and human development around the world.
The report has generated a lot of attention and has been the subject of blogs (from Russia, Singapore, Turkey …) press articles and comments from businesses, government official and individuals across the world.
Regardless of how the future unfolds, the Internet will evolve in ways we can only begin to imagine. By allowing ourselves to explore and rehearse divergent and plausible futures for the Internet, not only do we find ourselves more prepared for any future—we can also help shape it for the better.
I thought I’d sharing one of the video discussions on the findings of the report with the Monitor team.
