Take the chance and watch some of the lectures and sessions from the 22C3 in Berlin as a Inet Video Stream. I’m just watching the keynote speech from Joi Ito. He is talking about the information society and the development of the internet from a closed network, controlled by telco monopolist and IT-companies, to an open network controlled by the community. If you want to get a hint where the web is, where it is going, its current limitations and more, then watch the keynote speech.
Heise.de already covered the keynote speech on their newsticker.
