TROPPO PRESTO

Il nuovo libro di Howard Rheingold, Smart Mobs, come ci conferma anche Amazon, non sara’ pubblicato prima del 13 novembre 2002. Eppure in rete se ne parla gia’. Troppo presto? Si’, troppo presto.

The big battle coming over the future of smart mobs concerns media cartels and government agencies are seeking to reimpose the regime of the broadcast era in which the customers of technology will be deprived of the power to create and left only with the power to consume. That power struggle is what the battles over file-sharing, copy protection, regulation of the radio spectrum are about. Are the populations of tomorrow going to be users, like the PC owners and website creators who turned technology to widespread innovation? Or will they be consumers, constrained from innovation and locked into the technology and business models of the most powerful entrenched interests?
