Future or Fancy?

In issue 22 of the European Union Public Service Review, Jonathan Cave, Senior Research Fellow at RAND, examines the European Future Internet Initiative as a unifying vision for the continent and beyond (Get Specific Pages Here). Jonanthan discusses how difficult it is to define the Internet industry and measure its impact considering the connections between stakeholders from virtually every field of endeavour. He argues that policy makers need to be recognised as part of the same complex system and that only by taking longer strategic viewpoints can we learn to understand when to trust the self-organising characteristics of the Internet.

You can meet Jonathan and others to discuss the Future of the Internet at the FISE WG workshop in Poznan on 27 Oct.
