Global mind network

I found a great article
...We are all “neurons of this planet’s interspecies mind”, ventures Bloom, whose reputation is as a serious scholar. In this vein, the networked mind embodied by the internet is a global brain of Bloomesque proportions. Only here, the axons and dendrites of the brain’s nerve cells are us and the wires across which we whiz emails in seconds.
Bloom’s idea of a mass mind is a fantastical thesis that instantly makes the world seem much smaller and offers one enticing rationale for globalisation. When we get together and communicate en masse, who knows what the global winnings in the intelligence stakes might be?...
