The Times They Are a-Changin'

There's a new force in town, a force who's time has come, where tech enables the common man to fight back and make his voice heard, thanks to the net, the last bastion of freedom in the world. Additionally, this is not to say the web is perfect because the net, if not properly understood, can hurt, humiliate and steal you blind yet, at the same time, if properly managed, becomes a gateway to knowledge, collaboration and creativity at levels unimagined just a few years ago. Based on just what has happened, the possibility of us taking back our country becomes real because the internet and the hardware and software constructs that drive it, enable our voice to be heard at levels the insular bought and paid for politicos in DC can no longer safely afford to ignore in spite of K Street bribes and surreptitious corporate funding of campaigns to keep these compliant fools in power. 

Last rejoinder, if SOPA/PIPA passed, my posting of Dylan's album cover, even though it's being used under fair use auspices, would be illegal, something to think about when talking about the net and Article One of the Constitution - the right of free speech.
