in the inception of the idea inconectivity would be more than the sum of its parts has been a dream of designers and programmers and optical developers and many many other industries in the world.

the dream of a unifying, unifyed platform that inspires creativity and compasion, expresion and direction,
the dreamers of the pre internet age dared to dream of a network that connected us together.

they designed on their dreams of a world with vast information access available at the fingertips of a future generation.

the thought in global terms of what free flow of information would do to people as they shared themselves and their creativity accross the globe.

what the designers could never see was that the interconectivty would speed up the amount of knowledge there was.

programmers realised that people where the resource filling the net with knowledge, and designed a peoples knowledge database, wikipedia.

others designed a way to optimize web wide searches into pre data based result set updataed as users find what they were looking for.

as the pen was to expression on a mass scale, the net and its ability to promote discusion and debate,
and sites like ats spung up and a new format was born, the blog.

when people make content with camers, some content was funney, some bueatiful, and some just looked down right painful but funny non the less.

the basic idea the email was to be routed by the net and not some centerilzed source, allowing for many paths for the paket data to take, allowed for the infrastructure to be much more failure resistent, has allowed for a very robust non centerised infrastructure supporting comunities of de centerilsed networks from around the world.

the basic ingredients were always going to be "what" would evolve from the interconectivity?
would great works be acomplished in art and science and civil society or would people just distract themselves with an infinate knowledge base, or unite and speak the will of the users?

the interesting result seems to be that the net has allowed creativity to flourish, and has allowed many more debates and funney videoes and email, but to me it is the fact that people are using this new platform and decideing that they will protect the net, the idea that anyone can compete and win in this world,

in one unifying moment the internet (the user base over the net) said NO to wall street (hollywood) and the net screamed for freeeedddddoommm

freedom to not be apreassed by people who have little or no knowledge on how the internet works,
and not just the fibre optics and the phone system.

but freedom to have an opinion in a blog,
the freedom to upload videos
the freedom to receive email
the freedom to have debates
the freedom to create with others we have never meet in person
the freedom to be an individual

the simple ability for the internet to have an opinion,
the ability for connetivity to allow for every person to express their opinion,
that we will all fight for this beloved network that allows us our place amongst the knowledge.

amoung the people where we have voice
on the free net science has exploded into a resurgence of interest and knowledge base.
this explosion of content and science data is user generated and allows for the MASS undating of accepted published scientific data from the life span of a text book, to the very next publication accepted on the subject.over the net.

real time science as it happens, and a trickle effect as the news travels from site to site, blog to blog.
real time news as it happens and a trickle effect as it propogates throught the net like a new DNS entry, sometimes much much faster.

inter conectivity has allowed the free exchange of ideas on all levels and givin the world a semce of global comuity.

the internet collectivly has spoken its first word and that word is freedom,
i do not condone illegal file sharing,
this alone should not be the excuse to kill the miracle that is mass expression on a global level.

for those of us old enough to remember the early days we thank the dream of the pioneers,
a free flow of information and equal use for all.

Hmm, you are using words in your post that you did not create yourself.

So you are an internet pirate and they'll have to shut you down under SOPA rules.

in that case im going to start a pirate party like in sweeden

The Pirate Party (Swedish: Piratpartiet) is a political party in Sweden founded in 2006. Its sudden popularity has given rise to parties with the same name and similar goals in Europe and worldwide, forming the international Pirate Party movement.

The party strives to reform laws regarding copyright and patents. The agenda also includes support for a strengthening of the right to privacy, both on the Internet and in everyday life, and the transparency of state administration.[2] The Party has intentionally chosen to be bloc independent on the traditional left-right scale[3] to pursue their political agenda with all mainstream parties.

when we are no longer free law abiding citizens we are pirates?
lets start a pirate internet rights party to ensure rights

Not sure where you are in the world, but I'm assuming the US. It's been in existence for a while now, you should go and see how you can help out.

Freedom is most important when it comes to information without our openness to share new found innovations or knowledge between our fellow man we would not be here today, no fire no wheel no medicine no farming and no language and on and on.

When you look at the question philosophically it is absurd to even think we let this sort of thing happen.

I don't think A party is the solution.

We need lots of parties, in lots of countries, with lots of grass-roots support.

The corporations don't own the net!

The people of the planet do.
