Let’s take back the internet! Rebecca MacKinnon at TED
13 Jul 2011

Rebecca MacKinnon, internet freedom guru and Global Network Initiative / Global Voices stalwart was at TEDGlobal 2011, in Edinburgh yesterday.

Ahead of the January 2012 of her new book, Consent of the Networked: A Citizen’s Guide to the Worldwide Struggle For Internet Freedom, MacKinnon was reiterating her belief that the internet is headed for a Magna Charta moment when citzens rise up to demand their governments protect free speech online. She draws a fascinating correlation between the factors that led to the “great charter” in 1215 and modern interet censorship.

Take the time to watch it.
