While sorting through my old texts I stumbled on the thin tome – Ivan Illich’s Deschooling Society. Now I probably haven’t looked at the text for over 20 years, and on a re-read found a slew of jewels within:
“The operation of a peer-matching network would be simple. The user would identify himself by name and address and describe the activity for which he sought a peer. A computer would send him back the names and addresses of all those who had inserted the same description. It is amazing that such a simple utility has never been used on a broad scale for publicly valued activity.”
OMG, it’s all so Web2.0.
