Quote of the Week #99

Yes, regulation to keep the Internet open is regulation. And mostly, the Internet thrives on lack of regulation. But some basic values have to be preserved. For example, the market system depends on the rule that you can’t photocopy money. 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.

  1. 99… you’ve got to be planning something big for QotW #100. Fancy Javascript alerts and balloons?! A multimedia quote-stravaganza? I hope it involves Flash, Quicktime, Animated Gifs, ColdFusion, cold fusion, Java, and iTunes.
