below is the full text of the article:
people often ask what the next generation of networks will be like. In fact, there will be no next generation network.
the current space based network will gradually be replaced by time based "world flow". This trend has occurred, and from the people’s "life flow" began. As early as in 90s, I and Eric · (Freeman) to make such a prediction, and in 16 years ago, "connection" magazine article expounds this point in (Eric).
the "life stream", from a variety of elements, content search, instant message flow to blog posts, RSS source, Twitter news and other dialogue flow, as well as the Facebook message wall and the time line in the form of. Its structure reflects the transition from the platform to the flow, such a flow is flowing, truly represents the time.

The diary will be a reference book, a guide to your life complete, searchable. The diary after the page will start again.

Time has become a dimension of space, so we will use "Thursday’s diary" and "last spring everything" to describe the contents of the diary.
now, attention to time has become more and more obvious, especially considering that we naturally think of life as a novel, and linked together in time.
