This week Google’s Eric Schmidt was on a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where he suggested that the future Internet will be, in one sense, invisible — because it will be embedded into everything we interact with.

“The Internet will disappear,” he predicted (via The Hollywood Reporter). “There will be so many IP addresses…so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it. It will be part of your presence all the time.

Verkkosuunnittelun trendit 2015 – mitä sinun tulee tietää? | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

The Rapidly Disappearing Business of Design | WIRED | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

So, why is an independent design business important to anyone who is not in the field? The first answer comes back to YOU: the user and consumer. Design has had an outsized impact on your life in recent years, because designers are deeply committed to advocating for user needs / wants / desires in the face of corporate inertia.
