A little more than a year ago, I blogged here about my thoughts around the second coming of the Web. I've now fleshed out some of those ideas in a full-length Communications Of The ACM article. You can find the rest of the story in terms of the thought process that led to the article on my personal Web site. Additionally, this blog post might also serve as a useful means to collect comments from across the Web, since the ACM Web site itself provides no such functionality. Note also that in general, users might find my personal copy of the article that I've placed on my Web site more accessible than navigating the Communications Of The ACM Web site.
