Tim Wu’s thinking – The intellectual foundation behind Android

It’s nice to see Mr Wu’s thinking being acknowledged by business week. Nice article.

I also follow Tim’s thinking and he has commented on my articles on the OpenGardens blog -

OpenGardens, Walled Gardens, Tim Wu, Net Neutrality, Carterfone and IMS

Google’s brain trust was again trying to change the rules of the game. Behind the scenes, they owe a sizable debt to a man nearly unknown outside the geeky confines of cyberlaw. He is Tim Wu, a Columbia Law School professor who provided the intellectual framework that inspired Google’s mobile phone strategy. One of the school’s edgier profs, Wu attends the artfest Burning Man, and admits to having hacked his iPhone to make it work on the T-Mobile (DT) network.
