Over at Wired Magazine and its "Danger Room" is an editorial on President Obama's "Net Freedom Agenda".
When my friend Charlie sent the link to me via EMail I thought from the title it was some sort of net assessment of freedom in different parts of the world. I was wrong. It is about freedom on the Internet.
As we know, Egyptian Authorities shut down the Internet in Egypt and included things like Twitter and Facebook.
The piece in Wired Magazine, by Spencer Ackerman, is titled "Does Obama’s ‘Net Freedom Agenda’ Hurt The U.S.?". Does it hit the mark? Perhaps it does.
A question in my mind is what can we do to restore the Internet in a area where it has been hit with a "kill switch"? The supplemental question is what is our own FCC up to in regard to this "kill switch" idea?
