The future of the Internet

I am doing a guest lecture tomorrow for Axel Bruns' New Media Technologies class on 'Approaches to New Media'.

Guest lecture for Axel Bruns' New Media Technologies unit, 4 August 2008

SlideShare Link

As a part of it, I am considering Jonathan Zittrain's The Future of the Internet, and how to stop it. To be a crowd pleaser for a Monday morning class, I will use an interview he did with Stephen Colbert to illustrate his argument.

I am also using the recent piece by Nicholas Carr in The Atlantic Monthly titled "Is Google making us stupid: What the Internet is doing to our brains", as an item to discuss in tutorials.
