Code is like a paintbrush, and the Internet is the world’s biggest art gallery. Invented just 20 years ago, the Internet has changed the way we live our lives. However, still less than 24% of humanity has access to the Internet, so there is even more change to come. What can we expect from technology in the future, and how will it continue to change?
