When I Invented The Web: TBL on net neutrality

Net Neutrality: This is serious | Decentralized Information Group (DIG) Breadcrumbs

This has to be the best first sentence to a blog ever: “When I invented the Web, I didn’t have to ask anyone’s permission.”

Oh to be able to say that. Al Gore eat your heart out. Heck- Dave Winer eat your heart out.

“Democracy depends on freedom of speech. Freedom of connection, with any application, to any party, is the fundamental social basis of the Internet, and, now, the society based on it.

Let’s see whether the United States is capable as acting according to its important values, or whether it is, as so many people are saying, run by the misguided short-term interested of large corporations.

I hope that Congress can protect net neutrality, so I can continue to innovate in the internet space. I want to see the explosion of innovations happening out there on the Web, so diverse and so exciting, continue unabated.”

Of course there is an implicit criticism of foreign censorship apologists such as Google, Yahoo, MSN and others in there, too.

The god of the Internet speaks and he is angry. I hope he comes
down and smites the telcos with mighty force…

We all need freedom to innovate.
