The Internet is primed for a meltdown — and the most obvious cures are just as bad .. This is the London launch of Professor Jonathan Zittrain’s Book ‘The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It‘.

The Internet’s current trajectory is one of lost opportunity. Its salvation, argues Jonathan Zittrain, lies in the goodwill of its millions of users. Drawing on generative technologies like Wikipedia that have so far survived their own successes, he shows how to develop new technologies and social structures that allow users to work creatively and collaboratively, avoiding the excesses and abuses of openness and saving the Net from lockdown.
