In a very interesting article from WIRED, Kevin Kelly explains how a "single worldwide computer" will raise from technological evolution.

I also posted a comment :


One machine” (with a potential finality) or “one system” (with no necessary one) ?

It will be, for sure, a "complex" and non deterministic system made of billions of autonomous and self-decisioned actors (entities) with their own independent finalities.

Referring to "complex systems theories", the question is : "for which global ending ?” - chaotic evolution or targeted direction ?....

In the meanwhile complexity is increasing : it is time to switch to full systemic approaches in the design of our Information systems !
