To predict the evolution of information ecosystems 
(ecosystems of any kind, really), study the boundary 
conditions where exchanges take place.  This is the 
source of the evolution because it is where the 
rate of change is highest.  Not all change is 
evolution to higher forms.  Devolution is a process. 

Sometimes degraded modes are necessary transition states 
and sometimes what appear to be advances are actually the 
transitions into degraded modes, and vice versa.  
Note the energy budgets required for sustained 
actions and how they are affected by the feedback 
rate according to the controls. 

This isn't a simple system.
