On Saving The Internet

Via Wired, 101 Ways to Save the Internet. Paul Boutin hits on some major issues the lie within todays Internet. From stupid laws (i.e. DMCA) to stupid people. My favorite of the lot would have to be #64 which is aimed at Microsoft:

Simplify for security Fewer features means fewer bugs.

Now I may not think the Internet is that bad off, but I do not like some of the trends that are developing, namely the rampage the government has been blindly pushing forward. If they would only listen to just a few people that know what they are talking about when it comes to technology, then our law makers might actually write up some decent laws regarding technology.

At least our nations founding fathers saw it fit to let people voice their opinions without fear. No telling where I’d be without that one.
