This is a great article and while I don’t agree with everything he says, especially in regards to Path because I do see value in some closed systems (at least within today’s context), the internet is the best example of what the “American dream” really represents—a level field where everyone has an equal opportunity and where we can come together to share and build. Keeping the net neutral is imperative or we will have failed to fully realize the opportunity the internet represents.
At 3.5 million this is a steal of a deal and I’m sure you’ll have no trouble re-selling a house devoted to a highly misogynistic cartoon to a future generation that has no idea what the hell the Flintstones are.
Today’s post from In Focus, with the same title, is particularly moving, but I love this banner.
Demonstrators hold a banner during a protest against Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, after Friday prayers in Kafranbel, near Idlib, Syria, on February 17, 2012. Demonstrations against Assad were reported by activists in several cities across Syria, including the capital Damascus and the commercial hub Aleppo, after Friday Muslim prayers despite the threat of violence from security forces.(Reuters)
