A paper by Markus Luczak-Roesch, Ramine Tinati, Kieron O’Hara and Nigel Shadbolt on collaborative problem solving activities on the Web. The authors ask whether the Web can be conceived of as one giant machine. A thesis of information sharing activities is proposed, with the aim of developing a generic model of the computational capability of the Web.
