Marc Goodman: A vision of crimes in the future
I see your point. However, I do not agree with your point that openness is equal to security. In a sense yes. What I meant was that to acquire full security you need full openness and not the other way around. Security in its very nature is closed. You hide your keys so that others cannot open a door. When the door is always open you will not feel secure, when every door in the world is always open you will not feel secure. Why? We do not trust each other. And this is why Marc had this talk, not because he made "observations", observations are unbiased. He has been trained to not trust others and assume the worst. This is what I didn't write down in my original comment but it is at the core of what I meant. True openness is openness and trust and when you have those you have a sense of true security. Leave out trust and you will not have true openness and you will need closed security.

Marc Goodman: A vision of crimes in the future
I may not agree with his vision of the future but he has a valid point. We can not have both openness and security. Marc just points out that fact. If we do not have full openness we will need security and because there is also openness, openness will be used to breach security. Though I guess it might be far-fetched to imagine a world which only know openness as most of us will want to feel more secure because they view openness as a danger to security. Which it is.

Fill in the Blank - What the World needs now is __________ ?
Pirate party is a good start for instance :). Open policy, transparent government, reform of the patent and copyright system which are holding back innovation. Also why should I say "how" it should be done. The question was "what" does the world need right now. I answered his question.

Fill in the Blank - What the World needs now is __________ ?
What the world needs now is a new political movement that is not influenced by big corporations. As long as there are political parties that are influenced by corporations that aim to make a profit by imposing their will on politicians there will be no hope, no peace, no openness and no unlimited innovation. So what the world needs is political reform. Reform and new ideas that suit this world and its needs better.

Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor
Judging by what he says there are no implications "yet". His reactor doesn't break-even so it needs more energy than it produces. Don't get me wrong. This guy is freaking brilliant. The fact that he builds things way cheaper than big companies is something that might have BIG implications. His research might be used in commercial fusion reactors in the future (which are still far away). I'm not an expert in the field, but everything I've said is highly logical so take it as you will :).
