  • These are beautiful slides; a striking use of the Beyond Bullet Points approach, which I'm all in favor of. Unfortunately, many of the slides leave me wondering exactly what was Stowe getting across with it? I'd sure like to be able to hear him talking the slides. Looks like great stuff, but much of what I'm thinking is only conjecture on my part.

  • What is the web worth? How would you go about valuing it, if you had to? Is it worth all the tea in china? If Google wanted to buy the whole thing, what would it cost? Every blog post, spam comment, Wikipedia entry, and hyperlink: what would we charge if Martians arrived and wanted to buy it? The hardware involved is incalculable, and no reliable numbers exist. We can’t even begin to estimate how much we have spent on it. IDC calculated that 27 million servers had been deployed by the end of 2005, growing at an increasing rate of 3 or more million per year. Some have estimated that something on the order of 8 B USD was spent powering the servers alone, worldwide. This was about the same as we spend for powering televisions, globally, and growing much faster. On a crude level, we might compare it to television, which is telling. In the US, every hour that people spend online, is an hour not spent watching television. But this transcends an advertising-based valuation of clicks and eyeballs, because the web is not being created like television shows: it’s not being developed by hollywood. It is being built by us, for us. And it is being built without blueprints, without any centralized approval, without even any general agreement on what it is for. The big story of the web isn't the props - the servers, networks, ten trillion web sites, and all the information lying around in databases and in HTML - but what people are saying to each other and how we have been changed as a result. We are creating the Web to happen to ourselves.
