Verizon to Hulu: You’ll be dead in two years, anyway
The challenge for large media companies — and Verizon with its FiOS service now sits squarely in that camp — is whether they can keep up as smaller competitors innovate away at the next new thing. The real problem for incumbents is that such upstarts can be incredibly disruptive to the status quo without really having any chance to survive and thrive as an independent company.
In the end, though, it doesn’t matter if Hulu — or Roku or any other video start-up — actually survives. What matters is whether the innovations they introduce stick and how those innovations change, or in some cases shatter, the industry status quo.
Perhaps even scarier is whether or not true innovators get bought up by larger competitors. It’s easy to laugh off a Silicon Valley start-up. It’s not so easy when they get acquired by Google or Cisco or some other giant and become the status quo.

Fertility doctor on brink of cloning human: report
This was the case few hundred years before but then we move to a narrow down version of these professions and now are the time to merge these qualities again to take the next step in humanity.
There are enough examples in Chinese, ancient Greece, Arabic golden age.
Current education system is not capable to deliver the professionals of tomorrow. The education system is already got outdated, most of the things people study in their academic time are not any more useable in the practical field. There is some change currently going on in some universities for example MIT is doing big steps to update things for future, an example can be seen on following link:
But still it is not what the NG professionals will look like, this way a good physicist can be produced but not an inventor of next generation. We need bottom to top complete change in the education system, and continue change. Not only the one time change rather a change after every few years.

- End user will get free or subsidies access (dsl,FTTH etc) service if they agree to share their storage and home CPU for a SP cloud. SP cloud than can sale these resources to the interesting parties. A part this is already done by some of the P2P and video distribution companies, but an SP have much better position to do this due to the ownership of transport infrastructure.
- Providing Internet based High Def. Video services for home users (The main business will be webcam ladies)
- Providing billing for end customer for online shoping
- Location services for search and advertisment
- IPTV platform for media companies, no wall garden approch
