Jaron Lanier on "Who Owns the Future?"

May 12, 2013

Visionary computer scientist Jaron Lanier talks with Anne Strainchamps about his new book, "Who Owns the Future?"



This interview was one of the more interesting things I've heard in the past few months, lots to ponder after hearing it. Thanks for sharing.

Those interested in this topic should check out the much more accessible and compelling work by Jason Benlevi - "TOO MUCH MAGIC: Pulling the Plug on the Cult of Tech"



I have great faith that Facebook will soon be able to monetize the billions of members into ads and marketing.
So when will they and others begin paying us? They better do it soon or someone will figure out that this the real future and begin doing it to be the next big thing. Lanier has it just right. Who is listening?
