Seth Godin has just posted some very interesting thoughts on why, despite ten years of the internet, this "Internet Thing" has just started.

Here’s a summary of his top ten reasons:

1. Penetration. There are 50 times as many people using the Net
2. Bandwidth.
3. Tools. Online services with almost no custom programming
4. Servers. Huge, huge storage space for little cash
5. Wifi.
6. Multimedia. Photography, video, music.
7. Grandmothers. (use it)
8. Teenagers. (have always used it)
9. VC’s are back.
10. The death of TV. It’s "word of mouse"
