Stibel bridges the gap between business and the brain in his thinking, his numerous Internet innovations, and in his writings.   Wired for Thought helps us understand the internet in a new and more intelligent level.  The vision Stibel lays out in Wired for Thought will influence our futures.

The French Jesuit-paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin wrote in the 1930s that humans would become one body—literally—connected by a central nervous system.  Now Jeff Stibel has given it a name—the Internet.  He posits that the Internet functions as a collective human brain, acquiring knowledge by the same sort of interaction as our brains do.  A work of philosophy and of science, Stibel’s Wired for Thought becomes a practical business book, explaining how our collective brain will work in the future and how to deal with it.  By putting the familiar world of search engines and click-throughs into its proper historical and biological context, Stibel’s book opens a whole range of fascinating possibilities and predictions about the future.
