Thinking about the LCC Futures conference and the information that the internet is now fourty years old. Chris Linford spoke about personal computers as being not quite fourty years old and claimed that technology innovation usually takes about that long. For example electricity in the home or the motor car. But this cannot be exact. The internet did not seem to be happening much until the early nineties so appearances are not much of a guide.
This would help in my take on IPEX. If it is the Web To Print IPEX, following the Web To Print drupa, then the background of being roughly fourty years into the internet is relevant. Give or take say three percent either way. I may still experiment with fiction and time travel but there is the basis of a theory that may get past the fact checkers.
