In this Lev Grossman speech, the best-selling author discusses the ways in which social networks are reshaping the Internet.
Throughout the speech, Grossman draws on the analysis of contemporary technology. He argues that a sense of history, whether it be deep or within the past fifty years, is missing from the conversation. The Internet was created as a collaboration between private industry, the military and academia. This invention was rooted in the counter-culture crazed engineers, who had a dream of social experiment through the Internet. The Internet, he argues, was built as a commune. The anonymity and equality of the Internet is what has created this dynamic process of digital alter ego.
