Gillmor Gang: Locked in the Trunk

The Gillmor Gang — Doc Searls, Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — celebrated another undisclosed term of imprisonment in the siloed world of Twitter. Sure, we talked about lots of stuff. Microsoft losing its huge bet on Windows 8 and Surface. Netflix and Spotify carving up the media that used to be called TV and radio. How the Internet is too big to fail or be taken over.

But at the end of the hour or so, we finally got a good head of steam around the question of whether Twitter would stonewall its users, developers, and the realtime community — and get away with it. @dsearls thinks not, @scobleizer and (I think) @dbfarber think so, and @jtaschek is betting on the enterprise saving us. I agree with all of them.
