Phi Beta Iota Editorial Comment:
Nova Spivak is a holistic thinker on the technical side–he is of the caliber (and inclination) of a Ray Kurzweil. His most gifted and perhaps most globally-recognized slide is below, depicting his vision for the future of the Web.
Compare that with Robert Steele's Four Quadrants (the human-centered equivalent vision) to arrive at a useful convergence of human-technical co-evolution.
