Pierre-Etienne Dumont Posted over 3 years ago Roger McNamee: 6 ways to save the internet Like this talk, I do not understand what your point is. Is it a theoretical demonstration that entropy also apply to technology? “Things are changing” is so true, that it is an empty moto, like “water wets”. My point is you and Mr McNamee, measure the next BIG things in a strange currency, namely marketshare. A little history may help: Internet was a success because some geniuses build very low level protocols to communicate between computers while being able to withstand a lot of nuclear blast (in the 60’s). It was FREE in the sense the military is a tax payer enterprise. When universities used to connect (actually expending/creating the net itself) their student freely to the “internet” back in the 80’s, every Nerd was aware that market share had nothing to do with that breakthrough in the communication technology. When the vulture came (lately, as usual for feasting on rotten corps) late in the 90’th, the ‘real’ Internet (a communication infrastructure) start to be replaced by a mythical Internet (a consumer content). The only things that are saving the Internet are open/free technology/content. Wikipedia, and the likes. All the rest is noisy parasitism.
