Just tripped over some great quotes in a text called
"Art and Technology" (1969) in "John Cage: Writer", that you might enjoy.
Software sharing and digital devices imagined...
"Computers're bringing about a situation that's like the invention of
harmony. Sub-routines are like chords.
No one would think of keeping a chord to himself. You'd give it to
anyone who wanted it.
You'd welcome alterations to it. Sub-routines are altered by a single
punch. We're getting music made by man himself: not just one man."
"Do not imagine there aren't many things to do. We need for instance an
utterly wireless technology."
