1 comment3 May 2004 @ 07:29 by Ed Jonas @18.104.22.168 : A sustainable global interface
Im wondering if the simple idea that the internet is
simply a global interface with the planet between
us, the users and nodes.
The implications of this are novel indeed....
What then is our function in the local and larger
scheme of things.....
I know some have postuated that humans
function as sensors for not only themselves
but for the planetary awareness......
I bit of a streach perhaps for some
but the collective or social intelligence
is an emerging theme......
who is in control.....
I think that is part of the struggle
that we have to get away from the old ideas of
control and consider the semi-control or co-control
models that are emerging......
As well we have to make some inroads in
to the concept of a "sustainable global interface"
What good is what we have if it is not of a
why put in all the work without the sustainable
consideration.....and global sustainability is an issue
for us all.....
