Charles Geschke, Co-founder and Co-chairman, Adobe Systems; Member, The Commonwealth Club’s Board of Governors - Moderator

Davidow explains how the success of the Internet has also created a set of hazards, in effect overconnecting us, with the direst of consequences. Davidow explains everything from the recent subprime mortgage crisis to the financial meltdown of Iceland, asserting that much of it can be traced to the fact that we were so miraculously wired together.
