What crimes await the Earth in the future?
An insidious name, isn’t it? However, where does the programming come from? And let’s fantasize. The offer, of course, is unusual. Not to write about love, about bright relations between people … and here – to predict crimes. But there is no escape from the alarming facts. What is now in the world the most amazing, the most promising and the newest? The answer is obvious to many – the Internet.
For him, there are no state borders. It is developing very fast. An increasing number of people use it and correctly evaluate its convenience and speed. Email has long established itself. Why buy an envelope, scuff paper and wait a week, or even more? It is enough to drop a letter to the desired mailbox – and in a few minutes you will receive an answer.
You can conduct a dialogue in real time, you can even use spoken language. It all depends on the parameters of the computer, a set of installed programs and drivers. It is worth suggesting that traditional mail will soon become obsolete. Money transfers are gradually moving into the same category. A business man is in too busy a rhythm of life. He often does not have enough time for the most elementary friendly conversation.
And the Internet provides an ocean of communication, and not with random people, but with those whom you yourself choose. And it is not necessary to leave the house for this. On the World Wide Web, you can consult on any issue at the most professional level. Acquaintance of people by interests becomes extremely simple. Life partner is also often found through relevant sites. Prompt business correspondence is no longer possible without the Internet. Commercial transactions are increasingly being made in electronic spaces. Now there are a lot of money systems on the Web that control huge amounts. Internet money is not a fiction, it is quite real. They can be cashed at any time. Business is moving step by step into the global network, or rather, using it, which gives amazing effects.
Traditional advertising has recently begun to become cheaper because it is more profitable to redirect it to the Internet. And what’s interesting: if in “real” almost all commercial niches have long been occupied, there is competition, then on the Internet it is virgin. The global network is publicly available. The range of free services is striking in its range. It is they that allow many to easily get used to, and then, depending on goals and abilities, start a business. I will not continue to praise the benefits of the Internet.
I just want to make the following assumption. Ultimately, the Internet or Supernet (no matter how the global computer network will be called in the future) will absorb all human activities. Any sneeze associated with the execution of documents for the ownership of property, purchase, sale, and so on, will not be possible without electronic interpretation. What about the paper equivalent? It will soon disappear. Already today the document in the form of a file, sealed with an electronic signature, is valid. Identity cards, without which you can’t live now, I think, will be paper (or plastic) for quite some time, but someday they will disappear.
All information about a person, his rights to property, personal data will be stored in a single electronic archive of the Earth. You will only need to know the access code to them. A paper version of the documents at any time can be printed for temporary use. Literature, periodicals also tend to be pumped onto the Internet. Not really in the literal sense. Most likely, many new options will be created, and traditional ones will gradually lose relevance. On numerous poetry and prose sites, everyone now has the right to publish, if there is anything to say.
The question arises: will bookstores disappear? It’s hard to answer right away. But imagine such a picture. The reader buys an electronic work, and prints it at the nearest service center with binding services and the ordered cover (hard or soft). The parameters of the book indicate how many copies are allowed to print. It is very likely that such a service will not be required, and instead of a book, the reader will get used to open his portable handy laptop and, having given the text the format he has chosen, comprehend the information directly from the screen. But literature is a separate issue. Everything that the Internet provides and will provide to us was created thanks to the rapid development of technology and high-quality programming, the paradoxes of which will manifest in all their glory in the near future. Crime is one of them.
More precisely, the shift of crime from the real world to the virtual. The World Wide Web in the future will become an integral and even the main part of the activities of any person. Consequently, the sphere of crime will shift here. How do we get to our own information by going online? Set username and password. When working with electronic wallets, an additional file with a certificate is also required. It is clear that the first two parameters will become a tidbit for adventurers.
