The "Internet Industry" does not speak for me
By Dave Winer on Tuesday, November 01, 2011 at 11:22 AM.

I am part of the Internet. Because you're reading this, so are you.  #

But I am not part of the "Internet Industry" and they do not speak for me. #

I think Congress should go ahead and pass the law that Hollywood wants. Give the government the tools its asking for. Let them shut down sites they don't like. Let the users of the Internet see, fully, how vulnerable they are. #

I don't doubt that there will be a quick route-around. And the tech industry, which is a much better name for the group of people claiming to speak for the Internet, will end up making a bunch more money, which is what they really want. And the rest of us will have to fight for our freedom, which is reality. #
