Google CEO Eric Schmidt envisions a radically changed internet five years from now: dominated by Chinese-language and social media content, delivered over super-fast bandwidth in real time. Figuring out how to rank real-time social content is "the great challenge of the age," Schmidt said in an interview in front of thousands of CIOs and IT Directors at last week's Gartner Symposium/ITxpo Orlando 2009.

Garnter is the largest and most respected analyst firm in the world and much of what Schmidt said in his 45 minute interview was directed specifically at business leaders, but we've excerpted 6 minutes that we believe is of interest to anyone who's touched by the web.

Five years from now the internet will be dominated by Chinese-language content.
Today's teenagers are the model of how the web will work in five years – they jump from app to app to app seamlessly.
Five years is a factor of ten in Moore's Law, meaning that computers will be capable of far more by that time than they are today.
Within five years there will be broadband well above 100MB in performance – and distribution distinctions between TV, radio and the web will go away.
"We're starting to make signifigant money off of Youtube", content will move towards more video.
"Real time information is just as valuable as all the other information, we want it included in our search results."
There are many companies beyond Twitter and Facebook doing real time.
"We can index real-time info now – but how do we rank it?"
It's because of this fundamental shift towards user-generated information that people will listen more to other people than to traditional sources. Learning how to rank that "is the great challenge of the age." Schmidt believes Google can solve that problem.

I think BizAbh is just asking Philipp to link his name to his Twitter page, which is kinda legit, isn't it? BTW, there's no hyperlink in his comment.

OK, you made a typo.

If Philipp will link the post then you will be linked.

* Five years from now the internet will be dominated by Chinese-language content.

----but not much unique contents; read by Chinese people only. The volumn of content may be largest, but not necessarily dominant.

   * Today’s teenagers are the model of how the web will work in five years – they jump from app to app to app seamlessly.

---- in order to read more data and info in hurry seamlessly, not necessarily to gain knowledges.

   * Within five years there will be broadband well above 100MB in performance – and distribution distinctions between TV, radio and the web will go away.

--- Why? will we be all watch TV and Radio without reading and interactions?
