Some politicians are bothered by the wild west, free-market nature of the Internet and have sought various ways to regulate it — or make money off of it — and from time to time there are legislative initiatives to tax internet sales, regulate internet content, or regulate how traffic is handled.
For the record, I’m in favor of absolutely no restrictions on what can be posted on the internet, but with the caveat that R-rated stuff be limited to certain domain prefixes so people can avoid / block it.
But that’s not my point right now.
Everybody knows that the internet is killing newspapers. (Hurrah!)
Rick Wilson from Laurel Connections sent me an interview of Zephyr Teachout by Rick’s talented daughter Mary to the effect that the internet will also kill the university.
Again, hurrah! Two bastions of liberaldom destroyed by the geeks.
