As we mark 40 years since the transformation of the Internet from a single meme into a global communication tool, it's time for us to imagine that the future of the Internet could be both socialized to connect all people and materialized to connect all things. Considering the speed with which we now connect, a high level of global consciousness could emerge with active sharism around the world. This kind of emergent power could be showcased soon in some rapidly wired countries like China to see its constructive potential in politics and society.
