  • 2 billion net users. 5 billion mobile phones. 500m on Facebook, Skype, QQ. How man of you are NOT on Facebook?
  • Information. Companies don’t know what they know. Social networking and connected devices give them new insights. Government as data pipe. Weather.com data comes from NOAA. GDP, CPI, Unemployment, GPS, broadband adoption, etc. – USG data collection. SPECTRUM DNS. Companies collect lots of real user data that doesn’t always feed into policy process. Privacy/security – how much information to share. Katrina – we can fail to make use of data.
  • Regulator – 1871 steam engine (centrifugal governor). Regulation is endogenous. Financial crisis as well as climate change show need for internal brakes on the system. CLICK – BP oil spill shows what happens when regulation fails. Build in regulation of relationships among network providers via technical terms of interconnection – Network Utility. Business can do the same via APIs and how they relate to the outside.
  • Every company wants to be innovative. But, not one knows what it means. And innovation can destroy you. Compare: Apple, Nokia, Borders. Also, innovation needs foundations. Internet via DARPA, health care via funded research, markets in education and energy via government setting up conditions. Twitter and Facebook did not cause the flash revolutions that are breaking out across the Middle East, but they are a powerful illustration of what can happen when everyone is connected .
