I’ve long thought highly of Mark Cuban in terms of his ability to ride and at times get ahead of the wave, technology-speaking.
Now comes this post in which he states:
“There was a lot of discussion about my previous posts here and here. My point is that the internet is a stable platform. Its a utility. Its evolved to the point where you can count on it and develop applications for it without much fear that its going to change.”
The internet is a stable platform? It isn’t going to change? While the current notion of the internet might feel stable and reliable it is one of the most complex, anarchic “systems” the world has ever known. We haven’t even begun to scratch the surface in terms of the potential power of the internet. All one has to do is look to the sci-fi writers to know that our imaginations are just about the only limit out their in terms of our inter-networked world and lives.
It makes me sad that Mark Cuban could have the limited vision to say “The Internet is officially dead”
