I love Doc Searls. Few people inspire the future as well as Doc, especially when he is on a tear. Here’s a delightful short (<5 min) romp in an interview at LeWeb3 in Paris about the future of the web and the critical importance of making user-centric open systems the core of a ubiquitously connected future. (Think VRM and The User As the Point of Integration)
A few gems:
What is meta about life transcends what is meta about electronics.
We have to look to solve problems for ourselves.
What really matters is our indendence, our freedom, our ability to act on our own
