I've met Maciej a couple of times on several events. I always loved his talks and the way he was presenting. But when I was asking him about closing beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf 2014, I did never imagine what was coming. A fantastic talk which transcript had so many hits already, that I hope all those people are now going to watch the actual video also. Take your time and enjoy what Maciej has to say about the future web …
The Internet as we've built it is getting boring and creepy. Everything is tracked forever, not just by sneaky governments, but by advertisers who see any human relationship as a sales opportunity. We're told to confess our interests, our activities, and our physical location to a small group of centralized companies, or risk being forever left behind. But being left behind is starting to sound more appealing.
What would it mean to have a more human Internet? How can we keep the convenience and fun without sacrificing so much of our dignity? How can we fix the online world so we'll be proud to pass to our children? And where do we begin?
We begin at Beyond Tellerrand! ¡Viva la revolución!
