Submission + - The Ant-ernet: How the Insects 1s and 0s add up to complex social behavior->

retroworks writes: "The Atlantic reviews Edward O. Wilson's book, The Social Conquest of Earth which makes the case that biological social altruism is the cutting edge of evolution, and that humans are behaving much like other organized insects in the colonization of the planet. The case is strong, according to The Atlantic, because of the complexity of ant behavior. As revealed by Wilson, ants get things accomplished which really rival humans in both intent and sophistication, and that the relationships between individual ants resembles, as much as anything, an internet or computer calculation."
