This week, Congress is considering a bill that has the potential to greatly alter the distribution of information on the Internet. If you haven’t been following this, it is worth doing some research on it, as the implications for existing companies like Google and Facebook could be huge. It could also significantly impact start-ups if the threat of lawsuits takes off. Most importantly, as consumers we need to think through how this might affect how we consume and distribute information online. You can start your research here: http://americancensorship.org/. It’s obviously a one-sided take on the bill, but it identifies the issues that are at stake.
