The Net is evolving as a populist tool - that is, as a tool that goes beyond the ability to not only transform business, but also to transform society and even to transform our daily lives. The Net fosters personal creativity, business transformation, and mobility, and it can enable a do-it-for-me world. Furthermore, the intersection of e-services, information appliances and an always-on infrastructure, powered by the underlying open standards of the Net, will ultimately enable us to solve societal problems using the collective power of all the world’s people. Looking back at history, the Renaissance wasn’t triggered by a single act of bravery or ingenuity. It was a collection of acts by individuals of many different talents. It was not fueled by the bold acts of a few, but by the everyday acts of many. The Digital Renaissance will be also.
