New Scientist on "The Unknown Internet"

New Scientist just uploaded eight short articles about “The Unknown Internet,” including this one entitled “Could the net become self-aware?,” which speaks to the themes of my novel Wake.

In the article on self-awareness, Ben Goertzel, who appears in the acknowledgments of Wake, says, “The internet behaves a fair bit like a mind. It might already have a degree of consciousness.”

The articles also appear in the May 2, 2009, print edition of the magazine.
