Meramal Masa Depan (Jaringan) Komputer

08Jan08

Trend internet saat ini memang membuat pengguna lebih sering menggunakan web application ketimbang aplikasi yang ada di PC mereka sendiri. Orang-orang meluangkan waktu lebih banyak untuk menggunakan Gmail, MySpace, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, ketimbang Microsoft Office.

Benarkah web application akan menggeser PC? Simak beberapa quotes dari tokoh-tokoh dunia teknologi berikut ini:

  • Thomas J. Watson (founder IBM), “The world only needs five computers.” [1]
  • Ken Olsen (Presiden DEC), “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.” [2]
  • Nicholas Carr (penulis The Big Switch), “Young people in particular spend way more time using so-called cloud apps — MySpace, Flickr, Gmail — than running old-fashioned programs on their hard drives. What’s amazing is that this shift from private to public software has happened without us even noticing it.” [3]
  • Clay Shirky (penulis), “believe that today we are seeing the end of the PC era because of another divide-by-zero error: Many people today wrongly assume that in the future you will continue to be able to charge money for computers. In the future, in the near future, the price of computers will fall to free, which will in turn open computer use to an enormously expanded population.” [4]
  • John Gage (Sun Microsystem), “The network is the computer.” [5]
