(or, Is Google the new United Press Syndicate?)
Over at the Huffington Post I have a new blog post co-authored with Dan Schiller that tries to flag the current and timely Internet Freedom / Free Flow of Information / Right to Connect debate with a little more context. Here it is:
Free Flow of Information and Profit
by Dan Schiller and Christian Sandvig
In at least some sense it is a response to Monroe Price’s earlier post, “Clinton’s ‘Long Game’ Advancing Internet Freedom,” as well as Ethan Zuckerman’s reaction to Clinton’s 2011 Internet Freedom speech.
HuffPo made it a “Featured Post!” Woo!
But there are no comments. Boo! I think we used too many big words.
