"Each of us are connected, not just to a few others, but to a billion. We need not be aware of this hyperconnectivity for it to have its full effect. Hyperconnectivity is not a tsunami which overwhelms by sheer force of numbers; rather, it is like a vast sea wherein we all float, supported gently by the efforts of all.
And this sea is full of wonders never dreamt of."
