Importance of the Internet
Bradley Horowitz Discusses the Fabric of Social Economics

By: Sophia Pelka (Star) Feb 28, 12

Bradley Horowitz has a PhD from the MIT Media Lab and is currently the supervisor of Google’s communications products and social applications, including Google+, making him an insider and expert on the role of the Internet and social media in modern society.

Bradley Horowitz makes a concise argument that the Internet is essential for fostering innovation due to its increasingly collaborative nature. He explains that the Internet is democratized as anyone can make additions, providing inspiration to others working toward the same goal.

It is a platform for anyone to reach a broad audience, whether the goal is product or socialization. Horowitz also stresses the opportunity for those in crisis, like after a natural disaster such as an earthquake, to make use of digital communications and the connections and resources it can provide.
