PdF2008 Talks: Jonathan Zittrain on The Future of the Internet--Towards Civic Technologies



"Jonathan Zittrain is Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and a co-founder of its Berkman Center for Internet & Society. He is the author of "The Future of the Internet--And How to Stop It." In this keynote talk at Personal Democracy Forum 2008, he discussed how the internet is held together by technologies of cooperation; how the openness that has made the net and the PC powerful forces of "generative" innovation may not last; and what we must do to preserve the future of the open internet.
