Jaron Lanier on What Went Wrong With the Internet

What goes unsaid in this excellent Jaron Lanier interview about the pernicious state of the Internet is the role the curation of angels, VCs, limited partners, and boards have had in setting the direction of--guiding the evolution of--the Net and personal computing. Their choices of what technologies, and more importantly, what business models, to fund, and what not to fund, have had profound consequences that maybe we're finally waking up to. But maybe it's too late.

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
