We defend the internet and all other forms of communication against illegitimate encroachments by both public and private powers.
Timothy Garton Ash
A personal introduction
The internet has made many of us dramatically more free and able to express ourselves, and to receive and impart information and ideas. That freedom is neither perfect nor secure. Criminals, terrorists and paedophiles abuse it. Governments and corporations limit it – sometimes legitimately, sometimes not. We, the netizens, need to be on the lookout for illegitimate encroachments on this and all other forms of communication.
