    I think it's the other way around. Treating the internat as anything but a dumb pipe is ... dumb.

    I'm mad about google though. So yeah. I'll +1 that

    It's more the freedom to use it, rather than the fact it exists. Just like the the right to free movement. It's not so much about the roads you travel on, but the right to use it as you want.

    Generally I can get behind keeping the internet "free." But you can get painted into all kinds of odd corners with sort of thing. Bit like saying you support free speech and then realising that means you have to defend people's rights to say really retarded things.

    So why is google not everybody's friend any more?
