The Pew Internet and American Life research project has issued another report on the the future of the internet with predictions that by 2020:

  • Virtual reality will enhance worker productivity
  • Tech ‚Äúrefuseniks‚Äù will emerge as a cultural group, living “off the network”
  • People will continue to disclose personal information unknowingly, albeit for some personal benefit

There are other insights as well including the continued social inequalities and 46% agreed that the benefits of greater transparency of organizations and individuals would outweigh the privacy costs and 49% disagreed.

Here’s a video clip of Lee Rainie from Pew discussing the findings on the Lehrer NewsHour show.
