Abstract

Language co-evolved with human cognition 300,000 years ago and made distributed, interactive thought possible; the invention of writing preserved thought, making science and scholarship possible, but at the cost of slowing its turnaround time far below its neurological potential; web quote/commentary has at last made it possible to fast-forward scholarly skywriting to the speed of thought.
