Kim Polese at Web 2.0
Innovation is moving to a new layer. She's now running a company, SpikeSource, that makes software the way Ford built cars, the way Dell builds computers. It's a new breed of company, open source IT services. How do you take advantage of all the abundance you see in the open source world? They're building an automated system for assembling software.
Web 3.0 will be when any application you can conceive of can be built using open source components. Goodbye egosystem, hello ecosystem. The humble IT guy will lead us there — The Medici of Software.
Doc Searls is consulting on it, so you know it's gonna be good.
