This is the Cyber Era

This is the Cyber Era. The age just past was the Automobile Age or the Age of Oil. The phrase Cyber Era signifies a sea change underway. Cyber is like a stone hitting a clear Wisconsin lake. The ripples move out in concentric circles. We are in an inner circle now - infants with gadgets, rubbing our eyes, learning to swim. Cybercommunities are further out, intimations, intuitions, not yet materialized . But they will be along. Buckminster Fuller understood that things move from small to large. Cybercommunities are the next iteration of building on our planet. They are the physical expression of ideas that will dominate the Cyber Era. Ideas about values, about polity, about new ways of living together on this planet. Dreaming of cybercommunities is a prelude to their emergence.
