Starting evoluzination

In this blog I'm going to be dumping thoughts, ideas, questions and curiosities in the belief that we're building a bionic brain through technology and blog posts are just thoughts in the collective mind.
I was inspired to write this log after I received an email from Adaptive Path Newsletter. For the second time I read this thing about Web 2.0 and this time around having some extra time I googled it more and got to read Tim O'Reilly's paper "What is Web 2.0?". I have to admit it was a really cool article, I enjoyed it deeply, lots of food for thought. Some deli.cio.us's, flickr's, boxxet's, topic map's, folksonomy's, tag clouds's later I had a great buzz in my head, evolucination in action right there ;) After a while I also got to read the whole patent polemic so the Web 2.0 name doesn't feel so right anymore. Especially coming from someone talking about the new era of collaboration the issue doesn't seem minor.
Nevertheless, and regardless of the name, patented or unpatented, the concepts are still amazing and I'll be talking about some of them in next posts.
Anyway, better later than never, all this got me started with my procrastinated blog, so I'm thankful for that. I'll start sharing and thinking out loud from this place and we'll see what's next.

Congratulations in your blog project. It is an important one. In the Industrialized World we live sourounded by technology and lately, by computers.
While there has been a lot of reflection on the social and economic effects of technological change ,there is much need for a more philosphical inquiry. Boundaries between human and machine had become more blurred than never before questioning our assumptions about what it means to be human. Are we still human with a prostetic leg?. And with a chip in our brain?. And with...the posibilities are open and so is the debate. Thanks again for your contribution.
