David Weinberger

Neelie Kroes is becoming one of the open Internet’s most influential supporters. Kroes is Vice President of the European Commission and is responsible for its “digital agenda.” ” At the Forum d’Avignon I was at (see here and here ) she was just about the only person in a positon of power — economic or regulatory — to suggest that the Internet is actually a good thing for culture, and that we need new ways to think about copyright and distribution.
