In his essay, In an Open-Source Society, Innovating by the Seat of Our Pants, Joichi Ito says,

"The ethos of the Internet is that everyone should have the freedom to connect, to innovate, to program, without asking permission. No one can know the whole of the network, and by design it cannot be centrally controlled. This network was intended to be decentralized, its assets widely distributed. Today most innovation springs from small groups at its 'edges.'"
