World of Ends

March 7th, 2003 | Posted by paul in Uncategorized

Doc Searls and David Weinberger have put up a new website succinctly outlining the basics behind the end-to-end paradigm of the stupid network. May our Congress get a clue, stop repeating their mistakes, and understand this basic simple message:

  1. The Internet isn’t complicated
  2. The Internet isn’t a thing. It’s an agreement.
  3. The Internet is stupid.
  4. Adding value to the Internet lowers its value.
  5. All the Internet’s value grows on its edges.
  6. Money moves to the suburbs.
  7. The end of the world? Nah, the world of ends.
  8. If the Internet is so simple, why have so many been so boneheaded about it
  9. Some mistakes we can stop making already
  10. The Internet’s three virtues:
  • No one owns it
  • Everyone can use it
  • Anyone can improve it
