John Lilly's Defining Technology Speech Discusses Today's Fast Changes

How to retain your individuality and freedom in a world dominated by the Internet and social media is the focus of this defining technology speech by John Lilly. Lilly, the founder of Mozilla Firefox, attributes smartphones, social networks and the creation of the cloud ass the three driving forces behind the staggeringly rapid changes occurring in technology and society today.

Having said that, these changes create many implications for individuals. People can live in an Apple-dominated world, a Google-dominated world or a Facebook/Twitter-dominated world. These networks have the capacity to shape the views of the world and the types of information people consume. Moving into an era of the "cloud," people need to consciously shape their own views by pursuing entrepreneurial goals if they want to live in a world they control.
