Tim Wu “Father” of Net Neutrality, on Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Join me for an interview with Tim Wu, the “father” of Net Neutrality, author of âMaster Switchâ and democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor of New York. Itâs a wide open discussion on policy and politics impacting entrepreneurs, innovation and the fight for free and open networks and economies. Who does control the Internet? Could the Internet come to be ruled by one corporate leviathan in possession of âthe master switchâ? Is the borderless world an illusion? As the U.S. FCC ends its review, what is the fate of Net Neutrality? How should EU and U.S. governments shape competition and antitrust laws to nurture creative, innovation economies? Entrepreneurial economies? Is political corruption an innovation killer? What policies and regs help small businesses thrive? Should information be a public good? Can we have an open internet and âpaid prioritization? What is the future of internet governance? How can you impact the formation of policies that impact your business?
