The graph shows how long it took from first availability (in red font) to it being used by 25% of US population (in black font). It just gets faster, and faster and faster.
I bet if you check how long it will take 25% of the population to adopt the next big technology, it will be 25 months.
I'm personally grateful to the Internet/Web. Without it I would never have discovered what I truly love doing. Without it I would not have the opportunity to wake up and be incredibly excited to try in a small way to have a big impact.
