I am not going to cram every thing that people talk about. I am going to blog some of the new cool stuff that comes up.
Jonathan Zittran started by talking about www.FreeNorthKorea.net and nkzone.org blog. He had cool pictures of people sending balloons from south Korea to North and people creating solar powered radios to circumvent government's censorship. -> one channel.
Flexowriter the first word processor had a cool way to print ticker tape that could be fed back to the machine. The machine would then reproduce the document like mechanic Piano. -> one use.
Cell phone programs that can be used with wifi computer that can darken the whole rooms cell phones. (hmm. I am not sure this would work). -> dot exe. Many uses for one machine. Open architecture.
Jonathan showed his upcoming book that is all ready listed on Amazon. He hasn't finished it yet. He would just want it to order it from Amazon and see the ready book.
Annual income: Record industry 10 Billion $. MS Word 5 Billion $.
Captain Crunch whistle that came with cereals could fool AT&T long distance network --> phone phreaking. AT&T could fix the network. Later you could go to mall pay phone and accept collect call to the payphone. -> no one could fix Internet because of its end to end architecture. No central authority.
Too much features can hurt: "I see you are trying to write a resignation letter, would you like my help."
Tivo has a feature that shows pop ups when you skip the commercials. ->you have to see commercial to skip commercials :( -> return of one use machine hurt consumer.
XBox has to approve all software distributed. -> end of dot exe architecture.
The style of the speak was nice. Jonathan was well prepared, wasn't speaking from a paper and there was some one getting pictures and stories to white board behind Jonathan.
