Globalization, advertising and Nuffnang

Nuffnang is an Asian advertising company that is using Web 2.0 to distribute ads via personal weblogs. This is an amazing development in the globalization of the world because it is making a great deal of money.

The world is coming closer and closer together because people are no longer defining themself by their nation-state; they are being defined by their interests. The capitalists around the world is picking up on the changing way people are communicating and (as always) are jumping on board.

The boarders of states are quickly vanishing and the use of the internet as both a social and work tool may destroy the nation-state all together. But what could/would take its place? Here in the United States we have a very large government (state and national) that provides a great deal of services to its people. Will we be left behind in the advancement of globalization? It is my belief that the destruction of the nation will happen in the places that have the most to gain from this change--South America, Southeast Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa. Will we be able to compete?
