Ted Nelson-- came up with first concept of hypermedia, of widely connected computers-- he called it Hypertext.

the original idea of networking,from 1960s through the seventies, there wouldn't be copies, no copy function.
Think of any network design where there's actually money involved. You're not making a copy. It's a mirror, like an app in apple story.
If you don't have copies then your an have backward links and micro-payments.
We're making unnecessary copies. It's a carbon sin.
