Democracy & Technology Blog Gilder at Always On

Watch our colleague George Gilder discussing technology and the Net on two panels at last week’s Always On conference at Stanford:
(1) In Out of the Lab and into the Market , George moderates a discussion among IBM, SAP, and HP executives about innovation at large companies.
(2) Next, in The Democratization of Media: Good or Bad?, George responds to Andrew Keen, author of Cult of the Amateur, which argues that the open Net, social networks, and Web 2.0 are negative cultural forces.
