The Value of Openness/The Need for Protection

2009 April 7
by Anne Dalke

Two strikingly contrastive stories in today’s NYTimes: one fascinating history–on How the Internet Got Its Rules (which is all about the value of openness), and another account about a different value–the need for protection; this is about how the geisha are being pursued by modern tourists w/ their cameras. Many thanks to ZY (see: The Technology of Geisha) for helping me see this as an encounter between two very different (ancient and modern) technologies.
