Dan Gillmor: 2004 Outlook

In this audio recorded IT-Conversation interview Dan Gillmor of San Jose Mercury News gives his views on a broad variety of topics facing us in 2004. On the "copyright cartel," he points out that if we had been in this state 30 years ago when photocopiers became commonplace, "every one of them would have been registered with a serial number, and there would have been some heavy reporting system that prevented anyone from making an unauthorized copy of a piece of text...That sounds like the Soviet Union." Dan's also excited about the convergence of WiFi and VoIP while he believes that open-source software is "ready today for certain corporate environments while forcing Microsoft to get more creative on its extortionate prices." Find out more by listening to this excellent interview.
