Zittrain, Jonathan, The Generative Internet. Harvard Law Review, 2006.

  • Abstract: “The power and flexibility of the Internet has ignited growth and innovation in information technology and in associated creative endeavors, its generativity soliciting contribution from varied audiences. This very power and flexibility projected across millions of mainstream users has also become a vehicle for security threats that endanger its many desired uses. This Article describes how the intertwining of the highly generative personal computer and Internet is creating an information technology grid that will find itself in grave crisis with no easy fix.”
