Doc Searls on Saving the Net
Doc's take on Saving the Net from the Pipeholders reads, in part
. . . the bigger enemy is in how all of us understand the Net itself. We have choices there, and those choices may mean life or death for the Net as most of us have known it — and taken it for granted — for the last decade or more.How we understamd the Internet, indeed, how we tell the story of threats to the 'net, is a hard problem. Doc observes:
The Regulatory Environment . . . is where the phone and cable companies have an upper hand, and where they have natural partners among the copyright obsessives in the entertainment industry. All those groups want to kill the Net as we know it. If they have their way, the Net we know is toast.If saving the net is among your concerns, Doc's essay is worth reading.
