“In the next five to ten years, another 5 billion people will join the Internet,” said Schmidt, the company’s chief executive and one of the world’s richest men.

Most of those people will be in places like Asia, Africa and South America. And while newfound access to information will level the playing field to a degree, it will also set the table for the world’s villains as much as the up-and-comers, noted Cohen, Google’s director of ideas, who spent nearly half a decade at the State Department. This coming influx means we’ll keep seeing repressive governments censoring and stifling information and Internet access. And terrorists and hacker groups will continue to battle law enforcement in a fight that seems never ending.
