The End of the Web, Search, and Computer as We Know It | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

It all began with the “lifestream,” a phenomenon that I predicted in the 1990s and shared in the pages of Wired almost exactly 16 years ago. Now we are moving tot worldstreams and streambrowsers. The simple, practical features of stream algebra are going to give us made-to-order information.

Every news source is a lifestream. 

Every site’s content is liberated from the confines of space.
