Moxie: The next 25 years of the Internet

As a side event of NetHui this year, I was asked by Hayden Glass and Glenn Williams to participate in a Moxie Session with Jenene Crossan and Ross Young, marking the 25th anniversary of the Internet in New Zealand and discussing what the next 25 would be like.

My bottom line is that we have the opportunity to level-up ourselves as a society, because Internet.  In order to take advantage of this opportunity, we need to adopt the core values of the Internet itself:

  • Collaborative at the core
  • Celebrates diversity
  • Resilient, even antifragile
  • Has many communities
  • Borderless
  • Self-empowering

Good will triumph over evil thanks to the Internet, because it empowers people to do things never before possible, and everyone wants a better future that’s better than the past.

Do head over to The Moxie Sessions and have a look at the great work these guys are doing.
