«Internet Shutdown»

I think the Egyptian government's use of an internet "kill switch" is a prime example of why any government shouldn't have the power to shut down the internet. Keep in mind, there's a bill in the US that they're trying to pass that would give the US a "kill switch" for the internet. In case of a "cyber emergency", whatever that is. Something tells me it's whatever the government would want it to be.

If your government shuts down the internet, shut down your government.

  1. I presume you aren't in favor of the bill circulating that would give the US president the kill switch for the internet?

  2. @ Looney: That's correct. I'm firmly against any bill that gives the government that kind of power over the internet.

    Now, if there were a bill that would make fast internet a legal right for all, I'd be behind that! Like in Finland.

  3. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and access to the internet." ;-)
