Children are illogical and unpredictable little things, but their parents are still among the best-qualified people to calculate their futures.  And when Vint Cerf recently discussed the future of the Internet, much of the conversation focused on the concept of “bigger.”

As a minor side note, one thing did get smaller: the “i” in “Internet.”  Whether it was an editor’s choice or his own style, that word was never capitalized in Cerf’s article for The Guardian.

However, he did point out, “Today, barely one in five people around the world has access to the internet.  Yet around three-quarters of the world’s population lives within reach of a mobile network.  In the decade ahead, many people, especially in developing countries, will have their first contact with the internet via a mobile phone.”

It’s hard to imagine what will occur as a result of all those new users, and in this article, Cerf didn’t waste much of his time by trying.  He merely concluded by stating, “Regardless of the medium, there will always be demand for high-quality content.”

Also, Cerf seemed to feel that the Internet (or “internet,” if you like) is more than ready to handle whatever comes its way.  For those of you who have read about predicted slowdowns and such, that should come as a relief.
