The Knowledge Stream Keeps Inching Closer

I first mentioned the Knowledge Stream in my project list post.  In case you didn't get to read about it, the Knowledge Stream is a network of neural implants.  The idea is that all human knowledge could be shared instantaneously, without being restricted to a certain language.  The Stream would contain representations of information and concepts in a form mirroring that of your brain itself.

Anyone could subscribe to any feed of knowledge and get updates as they are published.  Likewise, anyone could search the Stream simply by thinking about the question or topic.

Anyway, the reason I'm writing about it again is because since the last post, there have been so many articles that are related to this.  They each cover a piece of the technology required.  Here is the latest one in which researchers created neural implants that are powered by your own body chemistry:,2817,2405796,00.asp

I'm telling you, it's going to happen!
