Name: Adam Cole

From: Ohio

Bio: Programmer, Internet user, lover of all things technical

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Community/Culture

Headline: One Community

Nutshell: As the internet grows it will come to encompass every aspect of society.

Vision: Already the internet mirrors almost every aspect of the human condition. The dark sides of our personalities are reflected in the dark sides of the internet, porn sites, warezs, hacker forums. As is the good side, the communities of religions that span the net, the help lines, the open-source areas so that all may help with a project. At no time has anything been created by humans that so clearly reflects our own souls, and as time goes on people and machines will grow closer.
