Ubiquitous human computing will transcend geography

Jonathan Zittrain
In an interview with Nokia’s IdeasProject renowned cyberlaw scholar Jonathan Zittrain talks about how ubiquitous human computing, which he describes as the ability to treat the human mind as a fungible resource, has enabled companies to attack any number of problems by throwing more minds at them the way they might throw servers at a website traffic problem.

An internationally known cyberlaw scholar, Jonathan Zittrain’s work focuses on the ways in which technology deployment impacts businesses and society, and the role intermediaries like national governments can play. His recent book, ‘The Future of the Internet — And How to Stop It,’ posits that the explosive growth of the Internet may prove to be its biggest drawback. He co-founded the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, whose mission is to explore and understand cyberspace from a legal perspective.
