Zappa’s ghost: 2big 2fail

Borrowing a bit from Larry Lessig, the web is absolutely moving toward a one-way medium controlled by big corps, big govt, or both. Don’t pay your taxes? Get promoted to Treasury Secretary!

Remember the AOL/Time Warner merger? Among the most egregious power plays in recent history; thankfully it didn’t work out. It was clearly intended to create critical choke points to deny access to all but the biggest of spenders. Control the hubs and you’re more than half way there.

I want to see corporations and governments fighting; behind the scenes they must be conspiring for mutual benefit; better they fight than collaborate, or we’ll be like China and Cuba.

The web will soon become the Central Scrutinizer.

Along with this. So sensitive, aren’t we? Maybe we should build environmentally friendly prisons for bloggers and taxpayers. Green jobs! Build jails with solar panels and windmills. That solves the “job” problem. Criminals need prisons; people need jobs.  New housing everyone can afford.

So line up for the latest injection.
