The article discusses the development of a Web of the Future (WOF). The author stated that the future of the web is the future of news, which is compiled by millions of people and millions of sensors. He added that the WOF will offer instant access to almost every environmental variable that science can measure. Moreover, the larger story in WOF is about soothsaying and authority, while most part of the Web of the Past (WOP) archives deals with the past.
