Information flows of the future

It is interesting how similar ideas raise here and there in seemingly unrelated context. The recent quote from Actionable Book Summary: The Inevitable by Kevin Kelly

And what’s next probably looks like this: Imagine zillion streams of information interacting with each other, communicating, pulsating. A new type of computer, tracking and recording everything we do. The future will be less about owning stuff and more about being part of flowing information that will supposedly make our lives easier.

Compare to the quote from Secushare draft:

secushare employs GNUnet for end-to-end encryption and anonymizing mesh routing (because it has a more suitable architecture than Tor or I2P) and applies PSYC on top (because it performs better than XMPP, JSON or OStatus) to create a distributed social graph.
