The internet is people
The internet is people is an interesting article looking at how the collective power of people on the internet increases its capability. They are really discussing the way the World Wide Web is used – but it did make me think that the connectivity of the internet is more that just the Web, although most people would not realise this. Any integration of internet activity needs to include not only the web but also email, ftp protocol activity, news feeds and so on. It also needs to include the wide range of software that is now being developed to operate these protocols. How people will ultimately thread into this system is still at very much a developmental stage.
