'The world is an Internet startup now'

'The Internet no longer belongs to the young tech genius with a great idea and the means to execute it online.'
Written by Joe McKendrick, Contributing Writer on

Quote of the week:

"The Internet no longer belongs to the young tech genius with a great idea and the means to execute it online. Innovation on the Internet now belongs to the world, and that is perhaps the most exciting thing about this space. It's attracting not just the 'next Mark Zuckerberg,' but also thousands of super smart innovators from every field imaginable, each of whom brings extraordinary insights and drive to play. ...in the end, it's not a singular business. It now encapsulates the human narrative, writ very large."

- John Battelle, in a recent post observing that people of all ages and in all professions are figuring out new ways to leverage online opportunities -- no longer just tech whiz kids and venture capitalists.
