      I believe it was Vernadsky's Noosphere:

      http://www.metafilter.com/56565/History-of-a-meme

      - unless, of course, you are specifically referring to the parts of
      this concept that are different in its Chardin's interpretation.

      Best wishes -

      When datacentres are sucking up a significant chunk of available power,
      yes, definitely. It's turning into some kind of Charles Stross or Ian
      McDonald future where our entire resources become devoted to servicing
      the computronium. Or where we're all living in a simulation powered by
      the last remaining energy (spinning black holes) before the heat death
      of the universe.

      Ooops, wandered off topic there. more seriously though Teilhard de
      Chardin's Noosphere (the world of ideas) is increasingly
      indistinguishable from the world of things.
