The Internet Economy
Chris Dixon

Good article.

I just finished Douglas Rushkoff’s “Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus,” as well as Paul Mason’s bracing “Postcapitalism” (wow!) and Dan Lyons funny/infuriating “Disrupted.” Reporting on them over at my blog (as well as books such as “The Rise of the Robots,” etc). Next up, “The Disruption Dilemma.”

“…expect video to get embedded into almost every internet service, similar to how the internet transitioned from text-heavy to image-heavy services last decade.”

I am finding the unstoppable video ad auto-launch embedded in an increasing number of web destinations a real annoyance. Often you find the freeze icon on one, and another one then launches. Trying to re-set “Preferences” is no help.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
