MSNBC – Bottom-up is turning everything upside down:
Joe Trippi, the guru behind the Howard Dean campaing use of the Internet, talks about the transformation happening in the redistribution of power and its affects on society.
“We live in a top-down society, where information is power, and where those at the top have most of the information and hold most of the power. This is true within the institutions of government, political parties, the media, corporations, and the military.
But something dramatic is happening: A giant wave of change is gathering more force each day. Power is shifting to the bottom, spawned by advances in technology and the decentralized bottom-up nature of the Internet.”
