Breakfast with Joi Ito: The Sharing Economy at Japan Society (11/20)

Let's get it straight, this won't be a private breakfast with Joi Ito rather a Breakfast Discussion on the Sharing Economy (and Creative Commons) at the Japan Society in New York (November 20, 8:00 AM).

The premise:

"The Internet has advanced a new type of innovation where startup companies and open source software projects collaborate in a loosely knit web, allowing people and companies to share and compete without asking permission -- a major departure from the original proprietary innovation model."

Another purpose of this breakfast talk might be to get the corporate crowd comfortable with making some of their stuff available in the open.

The loss of control as to where your 'content' might land still makes some uncomfortable.

Rising early for this Tokyo Thursdays # 65
