Youth Drive the Future

The future of the web is in the hands of 13-year olds. Here’s a clip from USA Today:

Internet pioneer Vinton Cerf says more than one billion people worldwide use it, and he believes its future is in the hands of young people.

“If you really want to know what will happen with the Internet, ask a 13-year-old,” said Cerf, the vice president of Google. He was a keynote speaker Monday at the Upper Great Plains Technology Conference.

Cerf said applications for the Internet already have expanded far beyond what he imagined when he worked on its development 30 years ago. He cited Internet-activated picture frames that electronically rotate digital photos as one example.

Google announced Monday that it is buying video-sharing site YouTube for $1.65 billion in an all-stock deal, giving the Internet search leader a more prominent role in online video.
