Mitch Kapor, Internet Visionary

Interviewed by Patrick Dillon, California Magazine, March/April 2006:

How has Internet use changed during the past decade?

A decade ago we were at the dawn of that era, and not at all clear about what it was going to be like. Now we are part of the way into it, so some things, like e-mail and e-commerce, we can safely assume are going to be major features of life for the next half century. And there are new phenomena rising out of the Internet that were utterly or almost utterly unanticipated, like Wikipedia, which is creating a new online community bent on upgrading our communal knowledge. We're not at the end of innovation, we're at the beginning."
