For some time I’ve been trying to pin down exactly what is happening as we each spend more and more time online.
In the past I’ve compared the Internet to a big library. I’ve also had a sneaky suspicion that it’s going to help us unify and adjust as we deal with the effects of climate change.
However, I’m going to add one new idea to the mix – we are creating a global brain.
I’m sure other people have thought along similar lines but I’m going to try and back it up with some of my own experience of how quickly ideas are spreading and why it’s really difficult to keep a good idea down.
