Interview with Francis Heylighen on the Emerging Global Brain

In 2011 the H+ Magazine issued an interview with Francis Heylighen, talking about the concept of the Global Brain. As Heylighen is the author of numerous papers on Collective Intelligence (CI), it is always interesting to get some more insights from the inspiring researcher. At the same time it is nice to see that he continues with his research and is open for new ideas and opinions.
Follow the link to the interview and read how Francis Heylighen and Ben Goertzel talk about the Global Brain, the fear of loosing our freedom and (most importantly) the obstacles the Global Brain faces while evolving. While the interview becomes a discussion between both, they also strike the questions on how intelligent the current Global Brain really is and which technologies support or did support the further development.
