  4. Many think the Internet is a good thing because it is unregulatable. The Internet is good, but not because it cannot be regulated. Like anything else, policies are voiced and implemented on the Internet.

    The true strength of the Internet is that, as an institution, it exhibits characteristics of policy formation that appeal to one's sense of liberty. This is not solely because of maxims like "The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it," or "No one knows you're a dog on the Internet." Free speech and privacy are laudable characteristics of the early Internet, however they are neither absolute nor guaranteed forever more. In fact, mechanisms of identifying oneself and controlling content can be useful as well as invasive. Instead, what makes the Internet a "good thing" is its anarchical characteristics of policy formation, such as decentralization, consensus, and openness that real world social structures have striven for some with more success than others. I examine these characteristics in the context of popular Internet quotations (and anarchist principles) that act as the belief system of the Internet.

    Outline

    Thesis: Mechanisms of Internet governance have resolved most Internet technical and social problems well. Not only should real world governments tread lightly upon the Net, but they might learn something from it.

  7. These are some of my early (1996 and before) essays on the Internet society. They were primarily aimed at the various excesses of enthusiasm awakened by the World Wide Web when it first broke in upon the social consciousness of America. I would doubtless write many of the essays quite differently if I were writing today, if only to reflect later developments. However, I think my observations have stood up very well in the face of these developments. I was, after all, generally writing about very fundamental principles.

  8. Linux has been successful because it's the product of programmers looking for entertainment and society rather than money, Linux founder Linus Torvalds said today.
