episode 627: Beyond the Browser - Intention Byway

Browsers and the Web are just one model for making the Internet work. Another is one Doc Searls and his colleagues at Customer Commons are working on: the Intention Byway. With co-hosts Katherine Druckman and Shawn Powers, Doc discusses how it all works: with compute nodes called "intentrons" at the ends and a "byway" for pub-sub messaging in the middle. As a new model, it creates a boundless variety of ways for demand and supply to signal each other in the open marketplace, outside the silos and platforms of the big tech giants. And, of course, it's all open source.

Hosts: Doc Searls, Katherine Druckman, and Shawn Powers
