This past weekend I read this brief article about Tim Berners-Lee on the 20th anniversary of the World Wide Web. Here’s the operative quote, “The rate of development and innovation on the web is actually getting faster and faster all the time. The web is not all done. It’s just the tip of the iceberg.”
Berners-Lee is absolutely right, and this is why we need to focus on unlearning. As I say in this piece describing the implications of accelerating innovation, this is why we need to beware of growing icebergs.
P.S. To better appreciate the accelerating nature of the Internet consider this: The World Wide Web is 20 years old, Google is 10 years old; Wikipedia is 8, FaceBook is 5 and Twitter is only 2.
