Remember when the internet was first invented? Remember how the world immediately deemed it as a “fad” and wouldn’t last more than a few years? Even the inventor of the ethernet cable (the cable we use to connect to the net) once predicted that the internet would collapse in 1996.
And then the internet took off; it became not only the thing that our everyday lives all but revolve around. But it becomes an innovation that lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty.
