Techno Nirvana

It will happen one day. Peace, abundance and happiness for the whole world. Technology today is driving the world in its quest for these things. The advent of the people rising to power has been promoted by the internet. Today more than 60% of the world is connected. The only problem, the developments blur the landscape.

There is so much happening in the world of technology. It's presumed that more than 1 exabyte (1 with 18 zeroes) is going to get created year after year. No wonder everyone is flocking towards data centres. The cloud is for real. Be it private or public. The other aspect of productivity from these machines is heightened by Virtualization.

Social networks today transport so much of data across the internet, I suspect that they will soon outpace email. Or maybe they already have. Email is the oldest way of exchanging communication which is still prevalent today, despite the dawn if instant messengers and other phenomenon like facebook and twitter.

The best facet of social computing is the sheer amount of people networked by it. News and other issues of interest mushroom in a viral fashion. It's not just computers anymore. Now all kinds of devices will also be connected to the internet. It's estimated that 2 trillion contraptions, including computers are connected to the internet. No wonder we will be soon running out of internet addresses. IPV6 will become a reality soon.

At the end of the day, the information warriors will triumph. Bits and bytes are driving the new economy, which is slated for a revolution.

Techno Nirvana for all …
