The Meshverse Predicted By Dave Winer

I also believe that servers belong everywhere, and predicted it, and it’s happening. Nowadays if you want to buy a webcam, you can buy one that connects into your wifi network and has an integrated HTTP server. That’s how you get the images — visit a web page on your LAN. I just bought a receiver that has a built-in HTTP server, so I can program the stereo over the Internet.Digital Lifestyle Servers Everywhere

I remember when Dave first made this prediction back in 1997. I thought then it was on the money and like others involved in virtual worlds, I still do, though there are protocols beyond http that need to emerge. I wonder how Dave likes his coffee?
