What does this map of global social networking mean for humanity (link in details)?
At 15 minutes and 9 seconds of this TED talk, there is a fascinating map of the globe as connected by Facebook. There are white patches and dark ones. Arcs of light connect distant areas.
Will the light areas push into the dark?
Will there be more concentration of light instead?
What do you think this means?
(If you listen to the whole talk, what do you think it means for the development of language?)
