I remember when I got my first trumpet winsock disk... downloading Netscape via gopher, # was definitely different then but even during that time,
when # ran on windows 3.1, there were talks about who would own and censor the internet later on.
I wasn't a believer, it was really hard to imagine how they could sensor something that was so free. I mean, I could visualize governments trying
to arrest people who were uploading certain documents but government listening in seemed way too 1984-ish to ever actually happen.
Now we got them listening in not only on the internet but everywhere. Everywhere we go, there's no place to hide, they can see us, even at home. I
didn't used to be the paranoid type but I will admit to that being pretty creepy. Yesterday they wanted to inject with a muscle relaxant for a neck
injury at the hospital, to which I declined, I was being paranoid about what was actually in there and the doctor seeming pissed off that I refused
didn't help, I mean, my neck wasn't broken and I preferred dealing with the pain than having chemicals and who knows what else injected inside of
But this is what I'm getting at... through all this paranoia that setting, and I do find myself pretty nuts at the moment, I think that just could be
one of the reason for all this. I seriously doubt that media rental and sales have that much to do with SOPA at all.
Also, what ever happened to levys enforced on ISPs for distribution of pirated material? If these companies received 10$ from every internet user in
the world that would mean a #load of money for these studios. The bigger they are, the bigger the cut, seems fair enough and I certainly wouldn't
complain. As for government listening in, that has to be a group effort from the community. I'll be making a post about my idea on this soon but it
has everything to do with direct democracy, a new form of digital government.
So there you go.. how it was, how I used to see it, how it makes me feel now and my solution to end this dumb ass digital war.
