Outside, in the future

All text on Earth is parsed. All things self-identify. Reality has an electronic, semantic dimension. The Web knows that "this is that," like a mind connected to eyes. This is The New York Times, this is a bicycle. This is the streetlight at the corner of Stevens Creek and De Anza.

That would be sort of like a return to infancy.
