Bruce Schneier: The Battle for Power on the Internet

October 3, 2013 | By |

The fantastic Bruce Schneier gave an excellent talk at TEDxCambridge: The Battle for Power on the Internet:

 

 

In it, he explains in his usual clear, easy-to-understand way how power is distributed in the web, and how this distribution has changed over the years. More concretely, how have distributed actors gained and wielded as opposed to centralized, institutional actors – and then goes on to think about how we can find a balance between both types of power to make sure the internet keeps being a force for positive social change in the world.

Please do take the 12 or so minutes, it’ll change the way you see the web and where it’s headed.
