According to CIO.com, Georgetown University Professor Mike Nelson made the remarks today at the World Future Society conference in Boston.
His comments came in the context of a discussion about the Internet, the cloud and its future. Nelson said that in the mid-1990s, the people who developed the Internet had a clear purpose. From their vision came the Web.
Today, it's a question if the focus about the Internet is as sharp as it once was. And if the focus is indeed faltering, will the cloud take its place?"
