The space revolution?

Many of us have learned bits and pieces of the 'Industrial Revolution' where industry, manufacturing, changed the social climate of the world.

I am wondering if there will soon be a 'Space Revolution'. While I have yet to see how space could change our day-to-day lives, I am noting more and more private and commercial adventures in this field. Take for instance Bigelow Aerospace. They are looking at putting hotels into space, already! (No kids, it doesn't have a pool, yeesh!)

And now it looks as if Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, is looking to set up a spaceport.

Of course, my explaination is simpler (following Occum's razor). I figure these guys are rich, and want their own X-Wings! Well, I do anyways.
