“Distant Voices” suggests that telecommunications exist because Normans had stirrups for horse riding which in turn led them to further advancements in warfare. Deep mine shafts flooded and scientists in search of a solution examined vacuums, air pressure, and other natural phenomena.

Prefatory note 

IN my book Espana Invertebrada, published in 1922, in an article in El Sol entitled “Masas” (1926), and in two lectures given to the Association of Friends of Art in Buenos Aires (1928), I have treated the subject developed in the present essay. My purpose now is to collect and complete what I have already said, so as to produce an organic doctrine concerning the most important fact of our time.


The specialist serves as a striking concrete example of the species, making clear to us the radical nature of the novelty. For, previously, men could be divided simply into the learned and the ignorant, those more or less the one, and those more or less the other. But your specialist cannot be brought in under either of these two categories. He is not learned, for he is formally ignorant of all that does not enter into his speciality; but neither is he ignorant, because he is “a scientist,” and “knows” very well his own tiny portion of the universe. We shall have to say that he is a learned ignoramus, which is a very serious matter, as it implies that he is a person who is ignorant, not in the fashion of the ignorant man, but with a petulance of one who is learned in his own special line. And such in fact is the behaviour of the specialist. In politics, in art, in social usages, in the other sciences, he will adopt the attitude of primitive, ignorant man; but he will adopt them forcefully and with self-sufficiency, and will not admit of this is the paradox, specialists in those matters. By specialising him, civilisation has made him hermetic and self-satisfied within his limitations; but this very inner feeling of dominance and worth will induce him to wish to predominate outside his speciality. The result is that even in this case, representing a maximum of qualification in man specialisation- and therefore the thing most opposed to the mass man, the result is that he will behave in almost all spheres of life as does the unqualified, the mass-man.

What will life be like in the year 2100? James Burke predicts

In 1973, the Radio Times asked BBC science presenter James Burke to predict the future.
He got a lot right, foreseeing the proliferation of the computer in offices, schools and homes.
Forty years on, BBC News asked him to predict the future again.
He paints a world 80 to 100 years from now, in which the proliferation of 3D nanofabricators mean poverty and scarcity have become things of the past.

James Burke Connections, Whole Series on Web Archive, Knowledge Dock and the Brain. Consciousness over Corporations! #WEB3. 

I have checked in from time to time to see how the Knowledge dock, James Burkes “Connections” Deep Learning application, (Its a sort of deep Learning AI for consciousness, not Corporations) is progressing. The Consciousness over Corporations preference? That is what I think the problem is with it, from a funding point of view, it honours consciousness and not Corporations.
The Stalled Kickstarter Campaign.

    the difference
    between the Internet and the web very
    interesting and he’s saying hey can we
    talk a little bit more about kind of
    your distinction between my
    understanding Atlanta
    the internet is advanced ocean of
    point-to-point connections which are
    established by specific methods each
    internet address has a number and when a
    request is made that number is sent by
    me the request is made for specific
    addressed sent is an alphabetical to the
    domain name server which finds the
    number of the address to send it to the
    message is then sent through a plurality
    of channels until it reaches the
    destination then a two-way channel is
    established that is the internet and the
    two-way channel uses tcp/ip which is the
    protocol stack created by Vint Cerf and
    Bob Kahn so that’s the Internet the
    internet is a vast ocean of
    cross-connected stuff the web is a
    specific set of conventions for sending
    columns of text which originally could
    reformat so you can made it bigger and
    then that the text would get bigger and
    again and it would chatter down the
    lines now the convention the web’s
    the web has a system of conventions and
    people put in hard carriage returns so
    if you enlarge something you can’t see
    the whole line and they put in all this
    white space and it’s a form of it’s a
    it’s a system of conventions for stuff
    and and so the web is entirely separate
    the if you think of the Internet as an
    ocean then the web is folks that float
    on the ocean
