Howard Rheingold at Reboot on the 3rd revolution  JUN 04 2002

A great post on BoingBoing this morning about Howard Rheingold's talk at Reboot:

"Tim [Berners-Lee] didn't need to go to the owner of the Internet and ask for the architecture to be changed. Because the Internet was created as an open platform, he could just do it. He did it. He put it in the public domain. Journos ask him if he regrets not earning money from each page, but while there's nothing wrong with being an entrepreneur, most innovation comes out of the public domain."

Damn, I wish I was at Reboot right now.
