Snowball and anarchy

February 11, 2008

Two nice quotes I stumbel across in a presentation by Gerd Leonhard:

“The Internet is the first thing humanity has built that humanity doesn`t understand, the largest experiment in anarchy we’ve ever had” – Eric Schmidt, CEO Google

“You`re faced with a massive, once-in-a-lifetime shift in mainstream consumer behavior from traditional mass media, including film and television, to new activities that you do not control: the internet, social networking, user-generated content, mobile services, video games. It`s been snowballing since the mid 90`s, for like 12 years — 12 years of denial and obfuscation — but it’s really rolling fast now.”Mark Andreesen, co-author of the first widely-used web browser, and co-founder of Netscape Communications Corporation
