Incredibill, yes, the internet will remain for another 20 years for sure; in fact, it will possibly remain most of our our lifetimes, but what I am really asking is whether the core in the we use the web today will remain for years to come.
If you look at the Internet, the fundamentals of the web has pretty much remained the same since people first started using it as a mainstream in the mid/late 1990s. We have had lots of little inventions around the web in the meantime, but they have all been sideshows (like the social stuff, for example) rather than anything disruptive which has enhanced the web but has not changed the core. The basics of the internet has still remained web pages for creating content/information and mainly search for finding content.
In the great scheme of things, the web is still relatively new though.
