Tim Berners-Lee has a very credible claim to patent the technology that runs the internet, but instead has championed for its open development.

    "Stiglitz about the trade deal. "The irony is that the president came out and said, 'This is about who makes the trade rules-China or the United States?'" Stiglitz said. "But I think the big issue is, this is about who makes the rules of trade-the American people, our democratic process, or the corporations? And who they're made for, which is, for the corporations or for all of us?""

Public Media Joins Forces for One Big Platform - 0 views

    Power for The Public Services... For The Public Media... For Every@ne's Voice.
  •  
    NEW YORK - The country's five silos of public radio and television are spilling into each other with a joint program that will allow them - and eventually the public itself - to build apps, stations, websites and other media services combining audio, text and video content from every public radio and television outlet in the country. NPR president and CEO Vivian Schiller appeared at Wired's Disruptive by Design conference Monday morning to announce the new Public Media Platform, a partnership between American Public Media, National Public Radio, Public Broadcasting Services (PBS), Public Radio International and the Public Radio Exchange distribution network. The Public Media Platform is "a series of platforms that will allow all of the content from all of those entities - whether news or cultural products - to flow freely among the partners and member stations, and ultimately, also to other publishers, other not-for-profits and software developers who will invent wonderful new products that we can't even imagine," said Schiller.

    This strikes me at first blush as a potentially disruptive move by public radio and television stations and networks, somewhat akin to the disruptive free and open source software movement. I.e., because the content is free and will apparently be freely available to the public for recycling, we may see the emergence of a viral free meta-network of the kind that content providers stuck behind paywalls can't imitate. Potentially a significant content commons counter-balancing force to paywall content providers. The devil is in the details and implementation, of course.
