Kevin Kelly: Predicting the next 5,000 days of the web
Here’s a video clip that I ran across earlier today. Kevin Kelly gives a TED talk where he basically shows how the entire internet has basically reached the computing power of a single human brain now. Theoretically, because the internet is doubling in size every two years, then by 2040 the internet will have exceeded the brainpower of the entire human race. Crazy!
I came across this a few weeks ago myself and really loved the idea behind it. I like that all the devices we have are like a window to the one super computer. Its capacity is fairly expected yet mind blowing at the same time, given how young the internet really is.
Thanks for the useful info. It’s so interesting
