In Archive by Fredy Ore

Wired post an interesting article by Leander Kahney titled, Futurist Fears End of Innovation, which comments on the talk by Howard Rheingold at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference and his views that the freedom of technologists to innovate is under attack as never before.
Commenting on legislative and political opposition to Innovation and also the influence by music and movie industries, Rheingold mentions that the explosive growth of Internet-connected PCs, handhelds and cell phones has dramatically altered the cultural landscape.
