This panel discussion will explore the expansion and escape of the web, information services and architectures beyond the confines of the Web itself and into the real world. Panelists will discuss implications for the future of innovation, economics, government, entertainment and society. Computers, TVs, smartphones, ebooks, gps, tablets, databases, apps, clocks, media content, augmented reality, electronic communications and myriad services have become such an integrated part of mainstream life that the line between the physical and virtual world is rapidly blurring. Technology hasn’t become invisible, but nearly so. In only 15 years, this world-wide experiment in linking together has infiltrated almost every aspect of our lives and changed the way we experience, learn, navigate, communicate, share and think about the world. Dots and devices are being connected in ways that were nearly unimaginable a short time ago. Knowledge and information are more widely available than any point in history. We’ve always invented and iterated on top of that which has gone before, and as our numbers grow, the critical mass of people with access to the collected knowledge of mankind is rising exponentially. The extending internet, this World 2.0, is changing the way we think about and solve problems, and changing the way we expect things to work.
