Understanding networks #ucpdwep

Talk from Howard Rheingold presenting the historic context of the growth of Internet networks and network theories based on the laws of Sarnoff, Reed and Metcalfe. I was interested in the idea about how networks change focus depending on the stage of their development, for example, content focused networks, networks based around transactions or networks sharing constructed values. Rheingold states here that social capital equals networks of trust.
