Kevin Kelly: The Web Runs on Love, Not Greed

AaronSw: "High-profile portal sites like Yahoo and AOL will continue to consolidate and demand our attention (and maybe make some money), while millions of smaller sites and hundreds of millions of users do the heavy work of creating content that is used and linked. These will be paid entirely in the gift economy."
AaronSw: Reminds me of The People's Net by Ruskoff.
