In it, software programs are no longer written, they are built by a global, peer-to-peer network of intricately co-operating programs, each one created and owned by a software developer.

A developer can now earn a living as a specialist by creating one of these Vendors and deploying it in the Code Valley marketplace where it will go to work for its developer, capable of delivering thousands of design-contributions to thousands of projects, and collecting thousands of payments, all in the space of mere minutes. Creating complex software is now fast and easy – one merely selects its features and the marketplace goes to work.
