Some rough guesses off the top of my head:
- The network perimeter will be non-existent (or ineffective); virtualization and commodization will create a SaaS-like corporate environment available anywhere/anytime from any device. Eventually a de-facto identification method will exist across the internet which will give rise to this platform abstraction.
- Fast-paced and openness of information will be the norm; and is considered a critical competitive edge. Restricting this flow of data will not be tolerated.
- Black markets and espionage will be common place on the Internet; a global group continual effort to minimize their affects will emerge.
See you in 5 years to see where we are.
