John Naughton, OU Professor of the Public Understanding of Technology, gave his inaugural lecture yesterday.
As a great writer, knowledgeable geek, historian, systems thinker, and educator, John is always worth listening to!
He gave us his unique take on why the Internet is even more disruptive than we thought, and how the insights of Cerf and Kahn led to a future-proof technical and social architecture that enabled radical developments even they could not foresee. I won’t spoil the talk for you by giving away any more details, but I heartily recommend you have a listen. Because John uses no special effects or PowerPoint slides (woohoo) the audio track is all you need; but the video is there if you want:
