Do you have a perspective to offer? Please contribute it. If the web does change the world, it will do so only by increasing the bandwidth of communication--by automatically combining the intelligent thoughts of many people. Eric Raymond has claimed that as far as writing software is concerned, "with enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow." It may be true for the rest of human endeavor as well...
