I've been doing this stuff for a decade...fixing problems on my friends PCs remotely, collaborating with groups of people to design a product
where the people are in different cities...the software to do this called netmeeting was free, shipped with every version of Microsoft Windows 2000,
and it was easy to use...I'm not a system administrator and I set it up. So again you're telling me I'll be able to do things in the future I've been
doing for a decade already.
Possibly the newer stuff will be a little easier but the old stuff was so easy, I don't see how it can be much easier. Someone else mentioned
security...if there's an opportunity for improvement that I've seen in personally using these collaboration services, that's probably it.
well i guess at your level you would properly find it easy to do sys admin work
it works out like this,
for every friend you have that you help, there is another 100 people who need those services but would never "pay" an IT professional to set it up or
show them how to do it.
i know that there is only so many people you can help in a day so if they can "self network admin"
or "self system admin" then it makes my life easier.
i see it like this, i iphone made mobile computing easy, anyone can do it as it easy to learn and easy to do,
at some point networking needs to be easy to learn and easy to do.
this will be more widly adopted as it is easy and quick to use.
although the underlying technology is very complex and interesting
