Howard Rheingold on 'new economic system': "

The online version of BusinessWeek carries a recent interview of Howard Rheingold about the "new economic system" he thinks it's emerging "from such seemingly disparate developments as Web logs, open-source software development, and Google." If you read the interview, you'll see that "Rheingold is worried that established companies could quash such nascent innovations as file-sharing."

He also says that the Nokias and the HPs of our world should give prototypes of their gears to 15-year-olds to discover what these creative young people can do with them, instead on relying on marketing people. You'll find selected excerpts in this overview. And if you haven't done it before, don't forget to read a previous interview of Rheingold about the US presidential election of 2004, "A Major Change in the Political Equation."
