Living in the Infosphere

Our nervous system has not only been “outered” as McLuhan warned us, but it has been evolving into its next stage of development. Social networks, Twitters, geospatial mashups and blogs are the rehearsal halls for the distributed human intelligence predicted by such sages as Teilhard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo. In this new networked domain: all persons and objects have a voice; all things can be found, and all that was hidden will be seen; all are connected, at multiple levels of coded reality; and what is real depends on how we interpret or manipulate these codes.
