  • The web is the most valuable human artifact ever created. We have no idea of how much we have invested collectively in its creation and maintenance, and while we may, as individuals or companies, consider the return on investment for some tiny element of the larger web, like a new router or server, on the whole the web is growing at a stratospheric rate with no real consideration of its relative cost. We don’t even know how much energy it takes to keep it going. It’s a truly distributed cultural activity. Our post-industrial civilization, in future centuries, may be defined by our building the web, in much the same way as we recall the ancient Egyptians for their pyramids, and the Chinese for the Great Wall. And in much the same way, the building of such artifacts says a great deal about the cultures that built them, and suggests a great deal about the shape of the cultures that followed their construction. But the web stands out from these merely physical artifacts. It has more in common with the rise of printing, as has been widely noted. And like the mass-produced books of the, the largest impact of the web will not be seen immediately, but will reverberate in our culture, as we are shaped by the tools we have built.
