hey, after all the whole idea of networking all cpu's and the development of a system to link them all dynamically is indeed an all-western concept. there has however been quite a lot happening in asia, in the middle east, and it starts to happen in africa as well. you might have heard how the african news agancy, which was on the verge of disappearing, got to be revived because of the easy and inexpensive mode of communication, and subsequent dissemination of information internet entails. so there is hope that, as brian eno put it in an interview, computers get africanized, and that content gets to be developped. the answer is therefore not so easy. however, i agree with you, vigilance, and/or accute awareness is still a necessity.
