I’m still lazily progressing toward the bottom of last year’s Edge.org world question about what will CHANGE EVERYTHING. I was surprised by a remark made by David Bodanis: “The internet is any many ways an even more powerful technology (based on early 20th century quantum mechanics, and mid 20th century information theory)”. I was under the impression that the internet is just built off of previous telecommunication technologies which don’t require any physics beyond Maxwell.
