“The most potent force shaping the future of the Internet is neither Mountain Views Googleplex nor the Microsoft campus in Redmond. Its rather a small army of Gucci-shod lobbyists on Washingtons K Street and the powerful legislators whose favor they curry.
After years of benign neglect, the Federal government is finally involved in the Internet big time. And the decisions being made over the next few months will impact not just the future of the Web, but that of mass media and consumer electronics as well. Yet its safe to say that far more Americans have heard about flag burning than the laws that may soon reshape cyberspace.”
