Digital Big Bang Shockwaves behind Meltdown?

The Digital Big Bang is on us. Between 2010 and 2012 we will all feel profound reverberations from the network ripple effect stemming from unfettered, ubiquitous broadband connecting PC's, TV's and cellphones.

But are early digital big bang rumblings already evident? After all, the recent and unprecedented global bank collapses could not have occurred without digital communications and exchanges to market the hi-tech instruments so rapidly and pervasively throughout the world's financial system.

Now the global, instantly available digital media universe, that surrounds and pervades our every moment, has the entire planet simultaneously frozen to their morose stories of global depression. Surely leading us into a broader recession than previously possible.

And, perhaps most dramatically of all, a young, inexperienced, black candidate from Chicago is about to become the next US President. Made possible mainly thanks to his awesome Internet fund raising and support gathering machine.

And who said the Digital Big Bang is not already upon us. Web 2.0 is just the tip of the iceberg.
