About 2022

The Future of the Internet

In the last four decades, no modern technological innovation has changed our lives as profoundly as the World Wide Web. It has transformed the way we live, work and play, while increasingly merging dimensions of reality and virtuality. Today, there are hardly any domains of human interaction that have not been part of this fundamental shift. In the process, the Internet itself has also evolved significantly – from a read-only interface, to an interactive medium and to a centralized network dominated by big tech corporations.

What can we learn from the various life cycle stages of the web for developing its future? How will visions and hype of the Metaverse and Web3 come into play and again change the way we express our identities, create and reward value, and solve the most important problems facing our society? These are the questions we discussed with you at the Ada Lovelace Festival 2022.
