Kevin Kelly, executive editor of Wired magazine, is a recent giraffe of technology, who offers a positive view of the digital age with links to history, biology, and religion. In his 2007 TED lecture, Kelly cites that the Web is less than five thousand days old but has the processing power of the human brain. Through hits, clicks and links, the Web mimics the brain’s neurons and synapses.
Kelly raises an important question. Where will this single machine (one we enter daily through laptops, cell phones, iPads, and servers) be in another five thousand days?
