The Web’s future via Nelson, Doctorow, and more

The WWW@10 conference looked back on the Web’s first decade – and, of course, inevitably invited thoughts about the next decade. Now, on the conference site, you can see video of heavyweights from different eras offering their thoughts. Ted Nelson, for example, speaks on “The Metaphysics of Structure and the Future of Literature.” Cory Doctorow asks “Web 2.0 = AOL 1.0?” and goes on to explain “how the forces of darkness are conspiring in smoke-filled rooms to break the Internet – and you’re not invited.”
