Internet “is” society [Manuel Castells]

diciembre 12, 2009

Diciembre es el mes de Castells. Esta vez una conferencia que ofreció sobre internet y sociedad gracias a una invitación de Yahoo Research.

Castells’ conclusion was clear: Internet “is” society. “To understand how to develop new (technology), we have to understand society,” he says. “Users ‘are’ the producers of the technology.” His recommendation is making the engineering and design process as open as possible “for free.” “This will change the world. People will absorb technology for themselves, in a more autonomous society.”
