A Great Talk About Network neutrality

11 April 2011 Posted by in category: Innovation

This is a very interesting talk by Barbara van Schewick, about net neutrality. One of the interesting things is her answer in the Q&A part, where she says that Android is a better platform for innovation than iPhone. She tells about app developers who say that they prefer first to develop for Android, which is more open (you don't have to get Google's permission to install an app). Then, if they succeed, they consider also making one for iPhone. I think that's a fascinating observation.

She also talks about several points of view about net neutrality, and the importance of preserving the characteristics of the internet that led to innovation. She emphasize that it doesn't mean preserving the same architecture, but identifying the things that enable anyone to innovate.
