Hyperconnectivity is a term invented by Canadian social scientists Anabel Quan-Haase and Barry Wellman, arising from their studies of person-to-person and person-to-machine communication in networked organizations and networked societies.

[1] The term refers to the use of multiple means of communication, such as email, instant messaging, telephone, VNI_Hyperconnectivity_WP-08face-to-face contact and Web 2.0 information services.
[2] Hyperconnectivity is also a trend in computer networking in which all things that can or should communicate through the network will communicate through the network. This encompasses person-to-person, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communication. The trend is fueling large increases in bandwidth demand and changes in communications because of the complexity, diversity and integration of new applications and devices using the network. The communications equipment maker Nortel has recognized hyperconnectivity as a pervasive and growing market condition that is at the core of their business strategy. CEO Mike Zafirovski and other executives have been quoted extensively in the press referring to the hyperconnected era. Apart from network-connected devices such as landline telephones, mobile phones and computers, newly-connectable devices range from mobile devices such as PDAs, MP3 players, GPS receivers and cameras through to an ever wider collection of machines including cars[3][4] refrigerators[5][6] and coffee makers,[7] all equipped with embedded wireline or wireless[8] networking capabilities.
[9] The IP enablement of all devices is a fundamental limitation of IP version 4, and IPv6 is the enabling technology to support massive address explosions. There are other, independent, uses of the term: The U.S. Army describes hyperconnectivity as a digitization of the battlefield where all military elements are connected.
[10] Hyperconnectivity is used in medical terminology to explain billions and billions of neurons creating excessive connections, within the brain associated with schizophrenia,or epileptic seizures

This is a start, however the British call it Hyper-connectivity. Here is the Executive Summary:

In light of this we may look at The Power of Networks:

My take on this is here:

In conclusion I will make the following observations:

  • Hyperconnectivity is nothing to fear if it is managed
  • It is the medium of social changes
  • Without change we are doomed to more of the same to the ruination of the planet
  • Hyperconnectivity empowers the individual
  • Globalisation is a great thing One human race One world
  • Individualism is not threatened it is enhanced
