Part 1: Introduction (7 of 10)

Today we're seeing the ascendance of other goals of integration, of global distribution, and radical decentralization via the World-Wide Web.

One thing we've learned to do in these (post-modern?) times is to mistrust sequential, "progress" view of history. History always seems to turn out to be more cyclical upon closer inspection. Indeed, the goals of those early developers are with us still, things have just gotten complicated in some different ways. As a result, we sometimes find ourselves re-learning the same lessons over and over.
