Yes, and then there's this:


“The right kind of interface design can take advantage of the worlds
evolving communications web and turn our screens into windows on
one another's minds.”

I quote Arthur C. Clarke out of context:

"What we are building now is the nervous system of mankind, which
will link together the whole human race, for better or worse, in a
unity which no earlier age could have imagined."

- Arthur C. Clarke, "The Social Consequences of Communications
Satellites," paper presented at the 12th International Astronautical
Congress, Washington, DC, 1961, and published in Arthur C. Clarke,
Voices from the Sky: Previews of the Coming Space Age (New York:
Harper & Row, 1965), p. 139.
