"Reflecting on the growth of the Internet in its early years, the Romanian author and poet Andrei Codrescu wrote, 'The speed with which the industrial world became networked in cyberspace was miraculous, like watching something in a Petri dish grow to the size of a flying rhino in three days."

The internet grew from something extremely small and specialized (ARPAnet) into something vast and unlike anything ever seen before. The internet made communication across great distances easy and virtually free, changing the way people shop, socialize, interact, do business, and learn.

Industry and jobs were created by the tens of thousands.

What else can we do?
What is now but a spec in a Petri dish...
