    • O’Reilly Web 2.0 Summit #w2smap
    • Was it enough?...nop!The interesting part is how these sectorsinteract through time
    • Systems Thinking๏ A really strong methodology for investigating complex situations, because it: - Focuses on what things “do”, and not what they “are” - Is dynamic, so the perspective of time is included - It indicates relationships among parts
    • The purpose of the InternetThe purpose of a system is what it does...So what’s Internet’s “purpose”?The purpose of the Internet is:“To provide value to direct and indirectusers”

    • Essential Parts’ PropertiesEssential Parts’ Properties : ๏ Every essential part has an impact on the properties or/and behavior of a system ๏ Essential parts can’t operate on their own ๏ If parts of a system are organized into subsystems, then they have the same properties with the essential parts

    • Lessons Learned๏ The “Game” - Use available resources - Create resources if needed - Anticipate for the right trends - Combine trends - Always remember the Users!๏ The (Big) Players - They have portfolios - They create options - Developers are a major resource
    • “S” Curves๏ By applying the “S” Curves theory, in every sector, you may have a better perspective of what is “emerging” in the system and how the system evolves๏ Remember, no part by itself, can increase the size of the system – (bubble alert)๏ There is Always something happening
    • Policy MakersBetter Interventions (if necessary):๏ The “Next Silicon Valley” quest๏ ACTA & Net neutrality๏ New Technologies๏ Subsidies for companies & startups
    • Remember... ... we are all part of it!
