David Weinberger su Europa e internet

David Weinberger è stato invitato al Forum di Avignone “Cultura è futuro“, e ne trae conclusioni sconsolate. Quote of note:

“But the participants at the Forum had what seemed to me to be a monomaniacal focus on Google, which makes sense if you’re thinking of the Net as a pile of content mediated by an index. They seemed to have no sense that there are living networks of people recommending and linking outside of Google’s search box. And for many of us, the transformative effect of the Net has been as a social place, not as an information medium”

Aggiungo io: quando la politica si occupa di tecnologia, di solito si tratta della tecnologia di ieri. Se fossi Google, mi preoccuperei.
