Not really. This isn't that different to existing technology, it's
just bringing together various things we already do. It's a common
feature in the development of technologies, and it's a great thing,
but it isn't anything that is going to change the world. E-mail, once
it let the military/academia, was a completely new thing, there wasn't
anything like it before (the closest thing was telegrams, which
charged by the word, could take a few hours to reach their destination
and couldn't have attachments).
