Internet Security, Regulation, and the Rise of Closed, Proprietary Platforms

This recent segment on Charlie Rose with Jonathan Zittrain is fascinating. Zittrain is a professor of internet law at Harvard and Oxford and the author of a book The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It and discusses the tension between internet security risks (enabled by open, non-proprietary systems) and the potential for a backlash of centralized internet regulation and the potential flight to closed, proprietary platforms (with inherent data privacy risks).

It’s a great segment (and only 30 mins) – well worth checking out.
