2011 looks like it’s going to be an interesting year for the Internet. As online marketers, we’d better start worrying.
Why? Because there seems to be some disturbing trends arising from activities of the U.S. government, telecom companies, and ISPs – all entities which have a role in the way the Internet works – that point to a tumultuous future. These stories have been out there for a while (in one form or another), but have often been overlooked by online marketers because they have to do with the underlying technologies that run the Internet…something a lot of us don’t have the time or expertise to think about much. Unfortunately, it seems that we may have to.
