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
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 !
Your comments would be higly appreciated !
