Lucas Gonze has been evangelizing a concept called lightnet. He coined the term, based on a recent Alex Barnett post entitled Hypertext and the next 15 years. Check out Lucas' del.icio.us page full of lightnet links. So what is lightnet? It took me a bit of clicking around to grok it, but basically it's the Two-Way Web for rich media.
Lucas wrote me an email to tell me how lightnet intersects with Web 2.0. I'm sure he won't mind me quoting this bit:
"...the benefits of web 2.0 can accrue to audio and video just as much as to web pages and feeds. For example, webjay-ish URL playlists are remixes in the web 2.0 sense..."
I couldn't agree more and I fully support the opening up of rich media to allow remixes - and other forms of 'user' creation.
