Strategies for a discontinuous future.

EFF releases a very nice paper on 'trusted computing'.

It's still amazing to me that we want the economics of things in the virtual world to be just like the economics of things in the real world - and the lengths most businesses are willing to go to make this happen.

Of course, the real rents will flow to people who discover ways to exploit 'natural' virtual economics - because when they do, incumbents employing protection strategies will get killed.

Oh yeah - the EFF paper makes all the points you would expect: trusted computing is 'owned' by a single platform, so the platform owners can use it as a mechanism to gain unfair market advantage, and users don't have enough control.
