The web (lower case) and society.

There was an Associated Press news item today about a huge once-in-a-lifetime spider web in Texas. It measures close to 200 yards. The web is by some accounts world’s largest mosquito catching device. Where am I going with this, you ask? Well, if you read my post yesterday and that of Nico MacDonald on whether or not the Web (cap “W”) can change society, you might ask yourself “Why don’t spiders work together more often and create an easier food source?”  They certainly have the technology.  It would seem they just don’t have the “societal” desire for change. Hmmm. Society changes society, not technology.  Score another point for Nico.
