- How networks have changed and what that implies for how people connect and form communities

- What the next stage of artificial intelligence will be and what opportunities it will present for businesses

Stibel shows how exceptional companies are using their understanding of the Internet's brainlike powers to create competitive advantage-such as building more effective Web sites, predicting consumer behavior, leveraging social media, and creating a collective consciousness.

From the Inside Flap:


A Bold Theory on How the Internet Will Evolve and What It Will Mean for Business

If you want to succeed on the Internet, forget trying to understand how the latest Web phenomenon works. Instead, you need to understand how the mind works.

In Wired for Thought, he takes readers on an exhilarating journey into the world of neuron hunters” who are using their knowledge of the Internet’s brainlike powers to create online businesses.

Viewing Web sites as the neural networks” of the Internet, Stibel describes how ideas live, die, and spread like genetic material across the Web, quickly transforming the Internet from a mere repository of information to a prediction machine” that can recognize patterns and intuit meaning. Through intriguing examples from Google, MySpace, The Search Agency, and others, Wired for Thought shows how this evolution is playing out and offers practical advice and compelling predictions for innovators, including:

How online networks grow, and how to manage each stage
What looming dangers threaten social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter
Why the Internet won’t grow forever and what will happen when it hits the wall
How advancements in artificial intelligence will impact businesses and consumers
Why an intelligent” Internet is closer than you think and what it will be able to do
