Net pioneer predicts web future

"The net is only in the Bronze Age of evolution, according to the pioneer who invented the Domain Name System (DNS)."

"Ten years from now, we will look back at the net and think how could we have been so primitive."

" 'All communication will be over the net', he predicts, 'and we will no longer need phone numbers, just web addresses.' "

"Searching and finding people are certainly the two areas that still need to develop further, according to Dr Mockapetris, and replacing numbers with web addresses will help that, he says."

"Part of the challenge for the net's next 21 years is to make sure people can be certain they are using the net safely."
