    I think that the number of people that are using the internet is not going to dramatically increase over a period of time. There will be a gradual increase but nothing massive because almost everyone has the internet. All of my friends have the internet!

    Yea these last couple years have been great for technology, such as cell phones becoming popular, cell phones with high speed internet services. Wireless internet is going to be hot. Pretty soon everyone and their mother will have a website (though this will probably be in like 30 years lol)

    I agree with this, the older generation is never really going to get into the internet, however as more and more children become teenagers there are going to be more and more users on the internet.

    Unfortunately I would be classed as someone from the older generation, I disagree with what is being said here. It is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. I'm 57 and until 9 years ago I had never used the internet, now I'm on forums all over the place.

    i think the use of internet will increase a lot in the next couple of years remember the world is bigger than the USA so maybe the big boom will be the participation in the internet from big country's like China , Russia and India

    i am sure there are many answers to this question. but to be straightforward and not afraid to put my foot in my mouth:

    1. something that has not been done before. a new trend or niche.

    2. something to do with capturing new and or foriegn market users.

    3. video. as video becomes more seemless, watching "choppy" videos and long downloads will eventually be replaced by higher quality video and quicker access times.

    4. tv on the internet.

    being in the industry forever.

    next big push.

    web 2.0 and IPV6
    wimax or some sort of reliable wireless broadband.
    more tablet pc, personalized pc portability. especially sense Solid State drives will be become a SFF storage and mainstream solution.
    web_tv broadcasting
    web_radio

    Application Security will be huge. More or less a bigger move in programming. Explicitly deny all and only allow users access to commands you allow. you would be surprised what you can do with "search" strings in databases by making it generate errors.

    As far as the next big Boom? Nah, Internet is staying the same, just IT jobs are coming back and companies aren't hiring yoohoos any more with just a college degree.

    Probably not another boom, more than more innovation of what the internet already is, a vast repository of data.

    I put my money on video streaming decent content, for the simple reason that you will catch more eyeballs (and revenue dollars) with a short and informative and entertaining video about a product or service than anything else a website could offer.

    During the boom, the web was literally being built, now its just being adjusted from time to time.

    I think it's ramping up now as well. Venture Capital is starting to flow again now that the VCs aren't scared of technology anymore and things are starting to go crazy.

    internet is all the time booming and blooming.. New opportunities are everywhere i'm sure of it. I believe people need to read/research on a deeper level what's going on in the internet and not only read their daily "techcrunch" etc. Reading only big mainstream tech-news will never give you the same insight into the future as reading a lot of smaller techy blogs...

    tv and video will get bigger...

    Big Box stores have increased their revenue by 30% and more just by selling their products/services on the internet.
