„they really want to listen – how to solve the rights and regulations problems – without destroying what is great about the internet“

interview andrew rasiey – personal democracy forum

„a clash between 21st century thinking hopes and dreams – lot of different players and forces – governments steep in history 19th century thinking – private company managing the public internet – but it’s a private internet – wheather or not the leaders will listen to the advice – realistic optimist – unfortunately many people running the government are pre-internet – they have not really felt it and understood it – i learned this during the egyptian revolution – when vodafone shut off – you can shut off the public internet – but you can not shut off the internet public – there is a new generation of young people living in networks and they grew up in network ways – they don’t trust that governments are default closed rather than be open – without that conversation we have nothing – step backwards too much regulations – on the other hand technology is evasive innovating – freedom boxes  http://freedomboxfoundation.org/– self powered their own network box to box – a little cat and mouse game – as this technology evolves it overcomes – reengineer the internet to be able to monitor people – big threat that the citizens themselves do not understand – seduced by the technology – not realizing what they are giving up – more data sounds great – but we also loose privacy – what does it mean to someone who is 60 and 20 – we are living in silos and not listening very well to other perspectives – device in your hand 80x times more powerful than the computer that took us to the moon – technology is moving faster than governmens can understand it – wikipedia is power if you like it or not – personal democracy forum new york – larger community of people that is interested in that subject – people are stepping up asking the important question – transparency, accountability, about fairness.“
