The Web: Experts eye Web's next generation

CHICAGO, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- The National Science Foundation's early-stage plans to build a next-generation Internet should focus on creating an environment where safety and security are the key considerations -- factors not integral to the original Web when it was conceived more than a generation ago, experts told UPI's The Web.
The new project, first discussed publicly last week during a scientific conference in Philadelphia, is dubbed the Global Environment for Networking Investigations, or GENI, and is estimated to cost at least $300 million to build. The primary idea is to focus on "pervasive computing" projects, as experts call them -- improving the performance of personal digital assistants, mobile phones and similar technologies, so millions of additional consumers can easily come online.
