Editor’s Note: As the Always On event comes to a close, we want to take this opportunity to thank Tony Perkins. Tony, you put on a wonderful, interesting, enlightening conference and we are very proud to have been a part of it. Thank you very much
Day Three at Always On for us was a busy mishmash of hallway meetings, quick (and not so quick) trips over to Sand Hill Road, and jumping in and out of the final panels.

Links to other’s thoughts:
Ross Mayfield: “By the third day, the content really kicked into gear.”
Dan Farber: On Bill Joy’s fear of the power an individual has to use technology to harm us “whether via a virus that runs through the Net causing economic damage or a manufactured or engineeered biological agent with the potential to kill millions”, and counter-points by George Gilder: “Free societies are safer when technology moves faster”
Dan Farber also wrote an excellent day two essay on Skype: “Skype: A new, friendly communications monopoly?”
