The Internet can help us identify when our efforts conflict with others and when they present opportunities for collaborations that could yield impressive gains. This column examines some science fiction scenarios that show how such functionality could help individuals achieve their goals with ad hoc processes. It also points out some of the substantial engineering and scientific barriers that remain before the great potential can be actualized.
