This work provides an understanding of the meaning of rapidly growing networks on the World Wide Web and how they affect our lives, from business and commerce to politics, education and the media. The author speculates on the consequences of massive global networking, and what might happen if it reaches a critical mass of "independent connected intelligence". Will the sum of people's connected intelligence be vastly more intelligent than any one person's could hope to be? This proposition points directly towards the possibility that we are currently undergoing one of the greatest leaps in the evolution of our species; connected intelligence may be the next step in the evolution of human intelligence.

Best known as the erudite and irreverent director of The McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto, Derrick de Kerckhove has been in the eye of the dramatic debate about the ultimate effects of communications and media technology for over two decades.Review:
"De Kerckhove sees technology's fingerprints on everything, from the fall of the Wall to the global market, from the increase in smoking in women to stock market fluctuations...de Kerckhove can look over the curve of the horizon and see what is waiting for us there." -- The Whig Standard
"De Kerckhove's beat is the philosophy of emerging media. When media pundits want to know how McLuhan would interpret the societal consequences of the World Wide Web, they call de Kerckhove." -- Wired Magazine
