A motley gang of anarchists, free-love advocates, and banana-rights agitators have hijacked The Love Boat out of Puerto Vallarta and are threatening to sink it in 7 days with all 616 passengers and 327 crew members unless their demands are met. The demand? A million dollars in small unmarked bills, and a GPL implementation of WATFIV, that is, the esteemed Waterloo Fortran IV compiler. (It’s surprising how few things the free-love people can find to agree on with the banana-rights people.)

GBN was founded in Berkeley, California in 1987 by a group of friends including Peter Schwartz, Jay Ogilvy, Stewart Brand, Napier Collyns, and Lawrence Wilkinson. The company grew to include a core group of "practice members", and over a hundred "network members," provocative thinkers from a diverse number of fields, such as social media expert Clay Shirky, anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson, economist Aidan Eyakuze, musician Brian Eno, biotechnologist Rob Carlson, and China scholar Orville Schell. For its first 15 years, corporate clients would pay up to $40,000 annually in order to gain access to this network of advisers through a private website, attend meetings on emerging trends and training seminars, and receive a selection of literature about future issues each month. GBN no longer offers this membership service, concentrating instead on scenario-based consulting and training.

It's said that with great power comes great responsibility. Among business functions, the IT group has disproportionate control over what can and can't happen in an organization.
Let's take instant messaging as an example. Assuming IT makes the final decision (which is often the case), enabling instant messaging both internally and with external parties can fundamentally change the way a business communicates. But prohibit instant messaging (which still happens today), and the IT organization is fundamentally dictating how communication will take place. That's considerable power for a business function, and it must be managed carefully.

Hi, I'm Esther Dyson, a long-time catalyst of start-ups in information technology in the US and other markets, including Russia. Since selling my company, EDventure Holdings, to CNET Networks in 2004, I have taken on newer challenges in private aviation and space as well as in health care (as a director of 23andMe, a consumer genetics company). My IT investments have included Flickr and del.icio.us (both sold to Yahoo!), and Medstory (sold to Microsoft), as well as Meetup Inc., Eventful.com, Boxbe and Voxiva; I sit on the boards of the latter four companies. I'm also an active investor in air and space, with holdings in Space Adventures and Zero-G Corporation, as well as XCOR Aerospace, Constellation Services International, Coastal Technologies Group, Dopplr.com, Airship Ventures and Icon Aircraft. I do business under the (reclaimed) name of EDventure Holdings.
