What happens after we’re all connected?

This is The Question asked by Mark Pesce in his interesting essay.
Connecting billions of people creates an emergent behaviour which he calls “hyperconnectivity”

"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."
