The Emergent Web

Episode 12 | The Emergent Web is an essay I had written before launching The Emergence Podcast I believe speaks well to the history and potential of a connection better serving the interests of more of the people connected.

We have to ask ourselves will society more likely benefit from the convenience of the masses or the deeper interactions of the individual? Now that the technology exists to pull this off isn’t the best investment to make the ones we make in ourselves. What better way to strengthen the core of this than through an emergent and purposeful connection.

The Emergence
Welcome to The Emergence. A podcast of essays, commentary, and conversations on the failed state of a highly centralized and manipulative web and ideas on how to reverse this course to create a future web where the user is in control outside the influence of outside interests.
Whether it is through the lens of technology, politics, ideologies, philosophies, social orders, or interpersonal relationships, The Emergence will dig deep to find answers to inspire the building of a connection more representative of the user.
