8 Ideas That Will Revolutionize the 21st Century

7 Dec ’05

Hugh Macleod writes that Ben Hammersley’s presentation at Les Blogs was the best of the lot:

The highlight of the show for me was Ben Hammersley’s amazing speech:

8 Ideas That Will Revolutionize the 21st Century (and blogging isn’t one of them).

1. Information wants to be free (vs. copyright).
2. Zero distance (vs. borders).
3. Mass amateurisation (vs.censorship).
4. More is much more. (vs. network blocking).
5. True names (vs. identity cards & databases).
6. Viral behaviour (vs. more network blocking).
7. Everything is personal (vs. everything is trackable).
8. Ubiquitous computing (no privacy).

What? Blogging isn’t on the list?

No Silly, says Ben, blogging isn’t one of them, blogging is all of them.

Perfect.
