2018: Life on the Net…. A Video

This panel at Fortune Brainstorm titled “2018: Life on the Net” caught my interest. The 19 minute video (below) was moderated by Quincy Smith, CEO of CBS Interactive. On the podium was Lawrence Lessig, professor of Law at Stanford Law School, Joichi Ito, CEO of Creative Commons and Chairman of Six Apart Japan, and Philip Rosedale, founder and chairman of Linden Lab, (Second Life.)

Thoughts from panel included;

  • MIcro-payments not working
  • Media just starting to work
  • Ignorance within government on how Internet works leading to the application old style corrupt culture being applied to it
  • Government waiting for something bad to happen to the internet so they can come in and take control of it
  • Economy shifting in media production because of Internet
  • Influx of Money from Capitalism and Venture Capitalist can take stupid forms on the Internet
  • Concept of big centralized company will be less prevalent than it is today because of the collaborative and shared nature of the Internet
  • Government and Academic research will open up to be more Open Source
  • More 3D data and adoption of gaming style software interfaces

Enjoy ….brad….
