<nettime> David Solomonoff on the perils and pitfalls of Internet Freedom

ISOC-NY President David Solomonoff writes about the pitfalls of
prescriptions for Internet freedom:

Hackers Fight For Freedom With Net Tech; Ignore Politics, Psychology At
Their Peril <http://www.bloggernews.net/126134>

Internet freedom initiatives must be independent of political connotations,
run on a decentralized infrastructure, and use technology that is subject to
public review by security experts. Most importantly, users must have
complete trust in the skills and integrity of the people providing those
tools and services.

If they don?t the cure could prove worse than the disease.
