The battle for the Internet Economy

Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle discuss "points of control."

Battles are brewing for the Internet’s points of control: search, location, identity, commerce and more. How these battles play out and who emerges victorious will shape virtually everything and everyone involved in the Internet Economy.

Tim O’Reilly and John Battelle examined the people, organizations, and chokeholds relevant to points of control during a webcast last week. Video from their discussion is embedded below.

“Points of control” is also the theme of this year’s Web 2.0 Summit, being held Nov. 15-17 in San Francisco. Learn more about Web 2.0 Summit at the conference site and check out the illustrated Points of Control map.
