Questions for the author of “The Future of the Internet”

1.    Given that openness is a mature, systemic value of computing and Internet culture, describe a realistic scenario in which firm and government-interests transition us to the tethered appliance model that you say is looming.

2.    You advocate more Wikipedia-stye self-policing of Internet behavior to clean up this town and assure the firms that there’s no need to stifle generativity.  How is that realistically enforceable against the serious purveyors of malware and among a generation that has come of age thinking that information not only wants to be free, “it wants to be mine”?

3.    Let’s assume that generative computing holds the line against the appliances over the next decade.  What innovations do you see emerging?
