The future of 'computing' & the fate of our civilization

A brilliant article, must read:
Unto us the Machine is born

The author's perspective on where the future is headed was indeed amazing. On the same note, a simple realisation struck me. The genesis of our planet is widely speculated to be from a single atom or molecule. Now, after 4.5 billion years we are speculating a scenario wherein a "Collective Brain" concept would rule the Earth. The irony is simply astounding, we start from the most basic 'unary' entity and are finally moving towards a similar concept of 'oneness' but essentially made of a billion or trillion elements!!!
Is this advancement or shrouded pandemonium?
