  5. 5. “some years ago word reached me concerning your proficiency, of which everybody constantly spoke. At that time I began to have a very high regard for you... For I had learned that you had not merely mastered the discoveries of the ancient astronomers uncommonly well but had also formulated a new cosmology. In it you maintain that the earth moves; that the sun occupies the lowest, and thus the central, place in the universe... Therefore with the utmost earnestness I entreat you, most learned sir, unless I inconvenience you, to communicate this discovery of yours to scholars, and at the earliest possible moment to send me your writings on the sphere of the universe together with the tables and whatever else you have that is relevant to this subject ...”<br />
  6. 6. research needs to be communicated to be powerful.<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. 1. the unexpected power of the law to defeat unexpected uses of technology.<br />

  55. 55. resisting the resistance is a human activity.<br />
  56. 56. 3. we must apply network design principles at the content and data layers, if we want this to work.<br />
  57. 57.
  58. 58. therefore, the digital Commons.<br />thesis: sharing drives innovation, reuse, and social benefit.<br />goal: make sharing complicated things easy.<br />solution: <br />voluntary, standard legal tools<br /> technically implemented<br /> “user interface to copyright”<br />
  59. 59.
  60. 60. but that’s just counting what gets posted.<br />

  71. 71. Browser Window<br />Warning<br />This is serious. Have you watched the video and read the legal text?<br />No<br />Yes<br />
  72. 72.
  73. 73. it wasn‘t inevitable.<br />
  74. 74.
  75. 75. design for re-integration. by others.as you federate, plan for the next layer.expect more data, and less skill at using it.build “commons” into your infrastructure.<br />
  76. 76. p.s.we have no idea how weird it’s going to get.<br />

  82. 82. how does your network react in the world that is racing right at us?<br />
  83. 83.
  84. 84. in a world of constant change, open systems can out-evolve closed ones.<br />
