Silicon Valley Watcher - Former FT journalist Tom Foremski reporting from the intersection of technology and media

Joichi Ito - One of the Smartest Guys in the Room - a "Venture Communist"

Posted by Tom Foremski - July 23, 2008

The best panel (by far) I saw at Fortune Brainstorm was "2018: Life on the Net." It was moderated extremely well by Quincy Smith, CEO of CBS Interactive. On the podium was Lawrence Lessig, professor of Law at Stanford Law School, Joichi Ito, CEO of Creative Commons and Chairman of Six Apart Japan, and Philip Rosedale, founder and chairman of Linden Lab, (Second Life.)

I'm currently editing the video of the panel and all were very good but wanted to pull out this segment featuring Mr Ito, who is one of my new favorite people to watch. He has some very original insights. During this segment, Vint Cerf, (Father of the Internet) calls out that he is a "venture communist!"
