‪Yochai Benkler on the eG8‬‏ - YouTube The liberty of Internet - 0 views

    Interview of Yochai Benklepresents his conclusions of the eG8 in Paris
    DANGER for the liberty of the Inyternet
    I believe all people should try to understand what's at stake here.
    Let's feriousosly oppose any move that could lead to the net doesn't get hyacked by particumar interests monopolies and partisan hegemonies.
    Let's not allow discouragement to take the upper hand, let's not get influenced by the fact that all prior information empires have been.through, if we have to believe Tim Wu in his book the Master Switch,
    But let's be watchfull, very watchfull indeed.

    This time the fate of closed hegemonies getting the upper hand should be disavowed. People who still believe in freedom, equity, and humanness, please, let's band together beyond all our differences tp disavow this fate.
    Democracy and our grandchildren's life are at stake

Rebecca MacKinnon: Let's take back the Internet! | Video on - 1 views

    "In this powerful talk from TEDGlobal, Rebecca MacKinnon describes the expanding struggle for freedom and control in cyberspace, and asks: How do we design the next phase of the Internet with accountability and freedom at its core, rather than control? She believes the internet is headed for a "Magna Carta" moment when citizens around the world demand that their governments protect free speech and their right to connection."
    Thanks @SailWozniak for drawing attention on this fundamental problem. A magna carta for Cyberspace... But who is the KING??? #mindamp
