Digital Future Survey:You Should Look

Digital Future Survey: The Parties Respond

***
To whom it may concern:

The early Internet was so accidental, it also was free and open in this sense. The Internet has become as important as anything man has ever created. But those freedoms are being chipped away. Please, I beg you, open your senses to the will of the people to keep the Internet as free as possible. Local ISP's should provide connection to the Internet but then it should be treated as though you own those wires and can choose what to do with them when and how you want to, as long as you don't destruct them. I don't want to feel that whichever content supplier had the best government connections or paid the most money determined what I can watch and for how much. This is the monopolistic approach and not representative of a truly free market in the case of today's Internet.Steve Wozniak to the FCC: Keep the Internet Free

Thoughts of Marshall Luhan come to mind.

On a slight revise version then of the "Medium is the Message."

Own the Medium then you own the message.

The point is then such a convergence of broadcasting telephony and internet, become a way for large corporation to transform the population as they are now b our acceptance of data trains and speeds, that we have to undo the damage already done by the conglomerates on the psychology of the people.

That should be Herbert Marshall McLuhan.
