I think with the internet becoming the new t.v.(we're coming up on half the world having the internet soon,) people will be doing a lot more reading and writing and texting and English will become standard acrosss all countries that speak it and slowly takeover all the other languges, too. Unfortunately the new kind of english will be horrible, and people will read archived internet files like our posts here and think it "sounds like old-timey english."
