We should be clear: Twitter is the centralized, for-profit internet. Embrace at your own risk. (I found this post via Twitter, of course ;) )


History has patterns that can help frame Dave's urgency about what Twitter provides and what he really wants.

Twitter -> Compuserve (a walled garden community)

Dave says Twitter is the Internet but I think it enables what he wants the Internet to be more like: a real-time, everyone connected, user controlled messaging backbone - NewZ.

History indicates Dave will (eventually) get what he wants because Open always seems to trump closed given enough iterations, programmers and start-ups to "make it so".
