The Web's most common method of interaction is the tried-and-true link: "Click here and we'll show you a different page." But the future of online will be fast, two-way communication, the roots of which are beginning to take hold. New technologies will soon give us speedy, uninterrupted access to the Web wherever we wander. We'll see innovative Web applications that allow us to access information anywhere and work seamlessly with colleagues around the globe. People will gain more power online--rather than simply reading the news, they'll be able to go out and uncover some stories of their own. And new sites and services will offer information targeted precisely to your needs, rendering one-size-fits-all sites obsolete.
