There’s been an apparent theme for my rants for the past couple of weeks where I seem to deplore the lack of sanity in the world. Ok, maybe not the lack of sanity, but at the very least the lack of originality of content provided by what I’ve been dubbing main stream media.
Then yesterday I found out about CISPA, which is apparently some kind of SOPA wannabe, and that, along with ACTA, PIPA, and all the other movement as of late we see from organizations trying to control the internet, has me worried that time is short for the internet as we know it today.
Here’s a video giving an overview of CISPA. I suggest you watch it.
I don’t want to bother you all with another rant on the subject, or at least not this very moment. Instead I’ll link you to an article that discusses Sergey Brin’s opinion on the subject. The article is a little short, but does detail some good points, which are very similar to my thoughts on the matter.
For those of you who may not know, Sergey is one of the co-founders of Google.
