What do the above all have in common? They’re all part of a wave of new synergistic web based applications which are changing the way we interact with the world wide web as we currently know it. The Internet is rapidly evolving from disparate pools of unstructured information to larger hyperconnected, community driven information oceans.

The net as it is emerging is all very reminiscent of visionary future portrayed in Masamune Shirow’s “Ghost in the Shell” – where this will go who knows… The Matrix has you!
