we are here to talk about the future of the net.

my vision of the future of the net is the same as the vision i enunciated ten years ago.

cyberspace is an integrated media realm of stories told and shared by digitally connected and enabled hearts and minds.
WE are the Future of the Internet. We have good stories to live and to tell.
let us make our stories represent our values of
open code
open access
open talk
open education
let’s bridge the digital divide
let’s build the commons of the net

blog it

please. each of you who attended our i*s berkman session, face to face or web. what happened. what question peaked your interest. use our means to light consideration of these issues. please blog our lexis nexis evening. please, everyone.

community is like a ship at sea. whose hero is gibson. link together what is happening here into a human net of global voices. everyman to take the helm in a chorus of voices rising from the universities of the world in concert with overmundo.

kevin back in jamaica, cyberone coming to a close in second life, ethan ready to put us together with croquet to see if we can get the ball rolling toward a vibrant open source metaverse.

focus on my class

i’ve been keeping a journal on the wiki of my Evidence class and finding that the focus of my blogattention has shifted from here to there.

Read the filtering report on Tunisia and consider its implications.
Read my blog response to Jimmy Wales,…
Consider how you would address national regimes of the world on how they should think about filtering their national information space.

Mangabeira — Again

This morning when I went to show Roberto the entry on my blog with our audio interview, to my complete bafflement the blog entry for Mangabeira is gone! Some genie in the bottle, computer gods once again at work. In any event here again, my interview with Roberto, who is running for the presidency of Brazil.

Here’s the short video that introduced Roberto to the Brazilian electorate, and Roberto’s description of his personal commitment to Brazil.
