The Age of the Internet Technologies is a mere 15 years
Having seen the evolution of the Internet Technologies some 15 years ago (1991) and having worked within the government prior to that period. The government's need was not the PC but the typewriter and the data mainframe. The government's IT technologies push did not take place until 1997 and very few folks can even remember the state of the technology, as I do. If it had been for young game enthusiasts, we all would still behind the a slow pulling mule and a game of pac-man. I for one believe that changes in next 5 years will cause all of us reason to worry for civil liberties and strict compliance. Be Careful What You Wish For and a bump in the Dark could be that runaway train we kept demanding to get here. Let them take their time and stop using the words like "decades" and use the numbers like 10 and 20.
