The Internet is undergoing a major paradigm shift. The factors influencing this shift, the commercial models that are emerging, and the resulting constraints that accompany these models are deeply rooted in the history of the Internet. This paper examines the historical forces shaping the new paradigm and the possible directions in which the new commercial Internet might evolve.
