Social theorist Jonathan Zittrain argues why he feels that the world is becoming a more friendly and sociable place via the Internet. The Internet, he suggests, is made up of millions of disinterested acts of kindness, curiosity and trust. In the case of Virtually Nao, I am completely inclined to agree, since without the help of previously unknown volunteers the project would not have been possible. It’s certainly a view of the Internet and technology that is full of optimism.
