  • The Digital Era
  • Its Impacts
    • Freedom of Access to Information
    • The New Dark Ages
  • The Process of Innovation
  • Constraints on Innovation
    • Access to Information
    • Copyright
    • Patent
information objects then early 1990s
Information Objects ‘Then’ (early 1990s)
  • Tangible things (books, journal issues, photos, vinyl LPs, audio-tapes, microfilm, video-tapes, cassettes, diskettes, CD-ROMs, games-cartridges)
  • A person bought, rented, borrowed or visited a tangible thing, or gained admission to a location where it was reproduced, performed or played
  • The person had no need for a copyright licence
  • Replication was expensive, required infrastructure
  • Copies were accessible by one person at a time
information objects in the digital era
Information Objects in the Digital Era
  • convenient and inexpensive Creation

desktop publishing packages, PC-based graphic design tools, animation, digital music generators

  • Conversion of existing materials

scanners, OCR, digital cameras, digital audio-recording

  • near-costless Replication

disk-to-disk copying, screen-grabbers, CD-burners as a consumer appliance

information objects in the digital era5
Information Objects in the Digital Era
  • very rapid Transmission, unmeasurably low costs

modem-to-modem transmission, CD-ROMs in the mail, emailed attachments, FTP-download, web-download

  • inexpensive and widespread Access

PCs, PDAs, mobile phones, public kiosks, web-enabled TV in the workplace, the home, public kiosks, Internet cafes

  • computer-based Analysis of data

data-matching, profiling, data-mining, pattern-recognition software

  • convenient Manipulation of data-objects

word-processors, sound and image processing tools

defining aphorisms of cyberspace
Defining Aphorisms of Cyberspace
  • On the net, nobody knows you're a dog
  • There's no 'there' there
  • The Net treats censorship as damage and routes around it
  • National borders are just roadbumps on the information superhighway
  • National borders are not even roadbumps on the information superhighway
  • The street finds its own uses for things
Defining Aphorisms of Cyberspace‘Information Wants To Be Free’‘Information Wants To Be Free To Go Anywhere’

“Information wants to be free

because it has become so cheap

to distribute, copy, and recombine”

“Information wants to be expensive

because it can be immeasurably valuable to the recipient”

“That tension will not go away”

cyberculture economics
Cyberculture Economics
  • 'barn-raising' - Rheingold

as distinct from 'horse-trading'

  • a 'cooking pot' - Ghosh

"keeps boiling because people keep putting in things as they themselves, and others, take things out"

  • a ‘honey-pot’ - Clarke

a culture of appropriation

plagiarism as good not evil

A culture of mutuality needs

an economics of indirect and/or deferred exchange

alternative economics of scarcity and of abundance
Alternative Economicsof Scarcity and of Abundance
  • Conventional, Neo-Classical Economics
  • The basis of value is Relative Scarcity
  • More Supply = More Competition = Lower Prices


  • Information Economics, Economics of Networks
  • The basis of value is Critical Mass
  • The more there are, the greater the value of each

  • in 1993, CD-ROM competitors emerged

esp. MS Encarta (Funk & Wagnall’s)

  • in 1997, EB sold 10,000 printed copies

InventionTheconception of a new ideaExpression of a new idea in a prototype apparatusInnovation The application of knowledge to the manufacture and deployment a new kind of artefactThe articulation of an inventionThe adoption of a new product or process

‘Tacit Knowledge’

informal and intangible

exists only in the mind of a particular person

‘knowing that’ cf. ‘knowing how to’

not readily communicated to others

‘Codified Knowledge’

expressed and recorded, in a more or less formal language (text, formulae, blueprints, procedure descriptions)

disembodied from individuals

communicable information

Codified Knowledge

An omelette recipe

A combination of structured and unstructured text

Tacit Knowledge

The expertise to interpret the recipe,

to apply known techniques and tools to the activity,

to recognise omissions and exceptions,

to deliver a superb omelette every time,

to sense which variants will work and which won't,

and to deliver with style

  • A combination of:
    • codified knowledge about artefacts, artefact manufacture, and artefact usage
    • tacit knowledge of many individuals
    • business processes within multiple organisations, into which are integrated codified and tacit knowledge
    • artefacts designed, manufactured and used by means of that codified and tacit knowledge
    • educational materials relating to artefacts, artefact design, production, use, maintenance
big bang innovation cf cumulative innovation
Big-Bang Innovationcf. Cumulative Innovation
  • Genuine ‘breakthroughs’ do occur
  • But most Innovation is progressive:
    • Dependent on Interaction with others, and often on Contributions of others, including Users, Suppliers and Competitors
    • Process Innovation is often needed, in order to support Product Innovation
    • Step-wise Refinement results in Incremental Emergence or Conversion
alternative economics of innovation
Conventional Economics

Information is an Output

Info is highly appropriable

Imitators contribute little, and are ‘free riders’

There are few natural protections for innovators

Innovators need a monopoly

Imitators must be punished

Information Economics

Information is also an Input

In many circumstances, not so

Many imitators add value, and hence contribute to cumulative innovation

There are many natural protections for innovators

Monopoly hinders innovation

Mere imitators must be punished, but investigation, enhancement and extension must be encouraged

Alternative Economics of Innovation
who does digital media threaten
Who Does Digital Media Threaten?
  • To those who do well under the old regime:
    • very few originators (authors, musicians)
    • mainly the major publishing houses

(of books, journals, music, films)

  • Control Mechanisms wielded by publishers:
    • re I.P., ownership of vast catalogues of it
    • re originators, through terms of contract, and promotional budgets
    • re infringers, through nastygrams, lawsuits
manoeuvres by the major publishing houses

  • Technological Protections for Digital Objects

(b) having the user pull alternately on one chain to induce movement of the user and the swing toward one side, and then on the other chain to induce movement of the user and the swing toward the other side, to create side-to-side motion”.

conclusion thenew dark ages
Conclusion: TheNew Dark Ages

The Internet promised information accessibility, but may lead to a decrease in information accessibility:

  • by citizens, which undermines democracy
  • by originators, which undermines creativity
  • by consumers, which undermines consumer choice, but also denies cumulative creativity
  • by knowledge workers within corporations, which undermines innovation
