In an interview with the Guardian, Brin warned there were "very powerful forces that have lined up against the open internet on all sides and around the world". "I am more worried than I have been in the past," he said. "It's scary."
The threat to the freedom of the internet comes, he claims, from a combination of governments increasingly trying to control access and communication by their citizens, the entertainment industry's attempts to crack down on piracy, and the rise of "restrictive" walled gardens such as Facebook and Apple, which tightly control what software can be released on their platforms.
"Privacy is a wall against synergy" -- Bozo Faust 2012
- Yes, definitely - a sentence is only true or false within some definite context.
- Yes, a group at fastblogit can have secrets. I am not against secrets and privacy in a general sense. I am just saying that in many (if not most) cases where it is used, it puts up a wall which impedes synergy and awareness. But there are cases where more synergy happens just because an activity is walled away from extraneous influences. So it is a good-bad thing ... i just think that people's knee jerk response is to opt for more privacy, rather than less privacy ... when they do that, they should realize what they are giving up.

The House on Thursday approved controversial cybersecurity legislation that the Obama administration has threatened to veto.
Members approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection (CISPA) act, H.R. 3523, in a 248-168 vote that split both parties somewhat. The bill was supported by 42 Democrats, while 28 Republicans opposed it.
CISPA would make it easier for companies to share information with the government about the threats facing their networks. Supporters ��" Republicans and Democrats alike ��" said the proposal is a reasonable compromise between the need for privacy and security.
