Summary
Feeling like the world is becoming less friendly? Social theorist and Internet law expert Jonathan Zittrain begs to differ. The Internet, he suggests, is made up of millions of acts of kindness, curiosity, and trust. In this TEDTalk the Harvard law professor elaborates on three examples of cyber-trust: the Internet itself, founded by three high school friends on the principle of cooperative networking; Wikipedia; and services such as the Craigslist rideshare board and CouchSurfing that allow people to share travel or living quarters with total strangers.
