Knowledge, Learning, Community

Interesting commentary from Steven Johnson, quoted here: "We spent our first years online in a world defined by open protocols and intellectual commons; we spent the second phase in a world increasingly dominated by closed architectures and proprietary databases.  We have learned enough from this history to support the hypothesis that open works better than closed [but] the only real hope for a revival of the open-protocol ethos lies in the blockchain." I'm not sure I agree with this but I'm not sure I disagree either. Image: Andrena.
