At the Cisco Networkers Live 2010 event in Barcelona, a Cisco spokesman estimated that video would make up 90 percent of Internet traffic by 2019. All Internet traffic will grow five times its present volume in the next three years, he also predicted.

Marthin De Beer, senior vice president of Cisco’s emerging technologies group, said the future of collaboration will be in video and will tremendously change education, healthcare, entertainment and business.

At the event, Sean Curtis, Cisco’s technical marketing manager, demonstrated Cisco’s transcribing software and said that much more information on a video will be searchable in the future.

Cisco is introducing telepresence software and advertising its potential for many working situations and home use.

Oh? New Internet technology? You have to ask yourself: what is the dark side thinking right now? How about:

— industrial espionage spyware: want to buy a subscription to your competition’s meetings? Want to buy spyware to view your competition’s meetings?
— ransomware: pay now by credit card and we’ll unscramble your video link.
— rogue security products: Buy TeleP Guard 2013 NOW! Protect your company’s meeting video! $49.99!
— hacking: tap in to your classmate’s live slumber party video.
— do-it-yourself spyware applications: what is your spouse doing on video with their friends?
— spam: take your blood pressure on line and **bUy ChEaP mEdS**
— porn: goes without saying. Nothing new here. They’re probably already using telepresence.

Ya know, there just might be a future in this computer security stuff.
