I was going to post something the other day about how Attorney General Gonzales wants ISPs to keep their records nearly indefinately in the guise of combatting child pornography.. and how that was yet another signal that Congress & the current administration is simply afraid of the internet.. and then talk about some other shizzle related to that..
But I didn’t.
And I’m glad I didn’t, because Ben Bleikamp did it far better than I could have with this post:
So why am I not worried?
Because soon the next generation of elected officials are going to be people my age, people who grew up with the internet, people who instant message their friends. In the next 10, 20, and 30 years the people that are elected to office are going to be people who ‘€œget’€? the internet, people who understand why net neutrality is important
Amen, brother. Amen.
