The Internet Renaissance – will we get it?

Great article from Dan Berninger, who notes Internet growth is slowing  and wonders about the prospect of doubling the Internet population by 2010.

Is it possible?  How would we do it?  Why would we do it?  What obstacles exist? What is the current Internet population?

Current trends point to 50% growth between now and 2010, although that may not even happen given slowing momentum.

According to Dan, we care too much about coercion and too little about communication.
