2000:

1. Still on dailup.
2. Pretty much everyone is still stuck on IE.
3. The computer I am using was pretty much only 10 GB in size. I am pretty sure it's window 98.


2005:

1. We finally got rid of dailup and transits to broadband.
2. Firefox already arrived, but it's 1.5.
3. I gotten an upgrade in HD size and other stuff. 40 GB.

2010:

1. Bitcoin is in its infancy.
2. The browser war is in full swing. Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, and others are competing and making the web a better place.
3. My latest computer is still an outdated piece of shit but it is dual core and store 4x the previous computer.

A whole lot more bitcoining. I expect/hope to see a disruptive transformation of our economy in the way we deal with our finance and how we think about money.

The rise of ubitious computing will continue. When we're finished with smartphones(the price of smartphone will drop until it become standard), we will upgrade our cars. At the end of the decade, we will have autonomous cars as part of our daily life. We're also begin equip everything with more computers and internet connections, connecting it more and more.

Cheap 3D printing become an everyday normal thing. Customization and improvement of products increase at a frantic pace.

Regular space launches will be the norm by the end of the decade.

In the next ten years we will see an open source movement for hardware.
One of my favorite projects the RepRap will be able to reproduce itself by the
end of the next decade.   http://www.reprap.org

There will be a movement for homegrown food, selling selfmade stuff etc.

The guys from openfarmtech will have built their first independent village

2. Pretty much everyone is still stuck on IE.
"Still"?  LOL, you are young!  Only two years earlier IE's market share was still below 30%.  Microsoft couldn't license Netscape, so they went for their loser, Mosaic.  IE's only success factor was being bundled with Microsoft Windows when a flood of Windows users got access to the Internet.  There were Unix and Mac versions as well until IE 5 (Mosaic had Unix roots), but I don't think IE ever got any share of the market on those platforms.  Netscape was far better than Mosaic, and the first versions of IE was just Mosaic with a Windows logo where the spinning globe would be.

Sjå http://bitmynt.no for veksling av bitcoin mot norske kroner.  Trygt, billig, raskt og enkelt sidan 2010.
I buy with EUR and other currencies at a fair market price when you want to sell.  See http://bitmynt.no/eurprice.pl
I support the roadmap.  If a majority of miners ever try to forcefully take control of Bitcoin through a hard fork without 100% consensus, I will immediately split out and dump all my forkcoins, and buy more real Bitcoin.

And the market will reduce everything to mere commodity...

Everyone will be reduced to intellectual works.

That, and the homeless will have blankets and foods printed by machines. They can also have an education if they ask for one of those cheap smartphone.

One day we will arrive to a post-scarcity society. It would be really cool as Cory Doctorow describes it; a web of trust.(Search Whuffie if you please)

Each day our advances accelerate. Each day there are more advances. We move in an exponential rate. I am sure this is not far away. Right now, focus on the now, make Bitcoin succeed.

I think I've read that book too!

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
