The BBC programme Virtual Revolution summed up my thoughts on Internet-naysayers (at least this is my interpretation):
Older people have always been afraid of every big change, if the web had been around when they were young it would not be a problem. “Generation web” are growing up not knowing what life was like without the web, just like the last generation couldn’t imagine life before the printing press, or cars.
Big changes mean lots to get used to, and the web is only 20 years young, who knows what the next 20 years will bring. Bring it on!
