The World Wide Brain

Part of the IFSR International Series on Systems Science and Engineering book series (IFSR, volume 11)

Web books and magazines are springing up with remarkable rapidity. Most of the discussion focuses on the here-and-now, or the next few years.

Someday, many seem to believe, the Web will become a truly intelligent system.
