In the first episode of our new podcast, Are We Doing Tech Right?, ConnectSafely CEO Larry Magid talks to Vint Cerf, widely regarded as one of the fathers of the internet. Vint and Larry look at the future of the internet through the lens of what it took to create it.
“Technology continues to evolve,” Vint says. “There are plenty of opportunities for evolving even the internet of today into the internet of tomorrow.”
Vint thinks that evolution can turn the internet into a more positive space. “Remember, gravity is the weakest force in the universe. And yet, when there’s enough mass, it keeps the planets in orbit. And if there’s enough social mass to adopt particular norms and behaviors, that can have a very big influence on the way people behave in the online world.”
Are We Doing Tech Right? explores the benefits and challenges of connected technology, in conversations with experts from education, healthcare, government and the tech industry, along with parents and youth.
