Dotcom boom 'just beginning'

The Mail on Sunday discusses the optimistic outlook of US economist W Brian Arthur.

    The internet boom will return - and it will be bigger and more profitable than the first time round. They sound like the views of a web nerd - or a lunatic. But this amazing assertion comes from respected US economist W Brian Arthur.

    ...

    According to economists who agree with Arthur, technology must become so user-friendly that people do not think twice about it. In that respect, the internet is being absorbed into everyday life, despite slow download times and quirky graphics.

    Once the glitches are ironed out, so the theory goes, the real money will be made by the players left standing.
