Influencing the political process for advancment of technology
Need an example? Think about IM in the context of what it really isÃ¢â¬Â¦delivering text messages. How much revenue do you think the Netheads make from IM? Combine AIM, MSN and Yahoo all together. How much revenue do you think the wireless carriers make from text messagin? Who wins the revenue war?
That isnÃ¢â¬â¢t the only place the Bellheads win. Look to political process. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve often wondered about our own ranks. Jeff Pulver. David Isenberg. Tom Evslin. Several others. Leading voices fighting the battle from without rather than stepping into the political fray of politics to redirect the system from within. If weÃ¢â¬â¢re going to win some measure of control away from the Bellheads, there is only one way. The political power base needs to shift. Netheads have to become the influencers of policy, something we are clearly not today.
