The dark matter of the internet is open, social, peer-to-peer, and read-write – and it’s the future of libraries. Michael edson argues that history is defined by periods in which we thought we had a pretty good idea of what was going on, punctuated by brief moments when we realised we really didn’t have a clue. We’re going through one of those moments now, and it’s all wrapped up with the internet and scale. Like dark matter, the internet has a force, a mass, and a capability that is often unseen or undetected. for today’s organisations, success comes down to how well we harness the dark matter of the internet and the opportunities it presents.
