Significant changes in hardware, software, and applications have set in place the conditions for a "perfect disruption" that could signal a foundational shift in how large-scale Internet applications are developed. Hewitt posits that the shift is away from mental agents toward what he calls organizations of restricted generality (ORGs), which are based on the way people interact within organizations rather than the way individuals process information in their brains.
