Breaking Down Digital Barriers – John Palfrey and Urs Gasser Present New Research on Interoperability

QuickTime Video

This week the Berkman Center and the Research Center for Information Law, St. Gallen released the latest study on the state of interoperability: “Breaking Down Digital Barriers.” This joint report follows the Roadmap to Open ICT Ecosystems released in 2005, as it navigates the nuanced territory of consumer, corporate, and governmental interests in the benefits and roadblocks to interoperable ICT systems.

The report and accompanying case studies on DRM-protected music, Digital Identity, and Mashups are available for download on the project website. The presentation and discussion of the report and its findings, took place in Washington, DC. Runtime: 01:04:20, size: 320×240, 181.7MB, .mov, H.264 codec

RB204: The Art and Science of Working Together

Listen: or download | …also in Ogg

If you’ve ever experienced the problem of a dead cell phone battery and only incompatible chargers within reach, you’ve experienced one of the minor frustrations of a non-interoperable system. This frustration — not to mention the environmental waste of having dozens of different charger types for the same class of device — has led some countries to institute regulations for cell phone manufacturers to use a single common standard.

Such a structure is an example of an Interoperable System. And interoperable systems can range anywhere from relatively minor markets like mobile phone chargers, to massive infrastructures like smart energy grids or air traffic systems.

Friends of the show John Palfrey and Urs Gasser are the authors of the newly released Interop: The Promise and Perils of Highly Interconnected Systems. They spoke with David Weinberger about how Interoperability works, and how interoperable systems can lead to greater innovation, greater efficiency, and better functioning societies.

RB 184: Intellectual Property — Not Just For Lawyers Anymore

Listen: or download | …also in Ogg
It’s time to stop thinking about intellectual property as something purely for your legal counsel to deal with. That’s the driving idea behind John Palfrey’s aptly titled new book Intellectual Property Strategy.

Companies and institutions that have to worry about creative works, trademarks, or brands would be well-suited, Palfrey says, to seize the sword and shield from the attorneys (who tend to be aggressive and/or defensive about IP) and exercise a little more flexibility and creativity with intellectual property on their own.

Palfrey sat down with David Weinberger for this week’s Radio Berkman to talk about why.

News and Entertainment in the Digital Age: A Vast Wasteland Revisited

In 1961, Newt Minow — then Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission — delivered a landmark speech to the National Association of Broadcasters on “Television and the Public Interest,” in which he described television programming as a “vast wasteland” and advocated for public interest programming. Fifty years later Newt Minow — and a slate of distinguished guests — reflect upon the changed landscape of television and dramatic shifts in the broader media ecosystem, and identify lessons learned that may help to offer insight into the next 50 years of media and public discourse.

Guests include Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow, Ann Marie Lipinski of the Nieman Foundation, Jonathan Alter of Bloomberg View, Yochai Benkler of Harvard Law School, as well as Terry Fisher, Yochai Benkler, John Palfrey, and Jonathan Zittrain of Harvard Law School. Other respondents include acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Susan Crawford of Cardozo School of Law, Perry Hewitt of Harvard University, Ellen Goodman of Rutgers University School of Law – Camden, Virginia Heffernan of the New York Times, Former Chairman of the FCC Reed Hundt, Former Chairman of the FCC Kevin Martin, Nicholas Negroponte of One Laptop per Child, Ethan Zuckerman of C4/Berkman Center.
