This GIzmodo article really looks at what the future internet might look like. Currently, data is held on servers and users use URLs as portals into those servers (and onto the data). What would make the internet better, faster and more efficient, would be to get rid of servers and pursue a fundamental architecture shift to a more peer-to-peer like structure.
Essentially, the idea is to remove the concept of the URL from the internet. In fact, the researchers explain that online searches would stop looking for URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) and start looking for URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers). URIs, then, specify where data is—and where to go in order to find it—rather than being the single point of call.
This would allow users to copy and re-publish individual bits of data they access in a peer-to-peer seed-like fashion. Other users would be able to access that data (or fragments of that data) from the nearest source instead of having to go all the way to the original server.
What kind of impact would this change have on the current tech industry? After this, I can certainly foresee a day when we no longer have to manufacture, configure, and maintain server networks.
