Jonathan Zittrain: The Web as random acts of kindness

Great talk about the decentralized nature of the internet and the common reliance on non-monetary incentives (network admins, bloggers, wikipedians). Many successful projects (wikipedia, couch surfing) can initially seem absurd and doomed to fail.
And yet it floats.

Thanks to blurry crowd of technical bloggers whose posts help me day in and day out. Special thanks to Tim Berners-Lee and the internet pioneers before him.
