    As a footnote, if you like ... to anyone who has read my article, Guinness have just recently changed their website. I guess because they were losing people with the big fat warning on the front page. The international legal stuff is still there, but now it's buried at the bottom of the 'Terms of use' (point 7).

    Cool Interesting Article

    I had no idea the world had convened so in order to confine the net. But I guess when you have something everyone can use, you'll try to control it as best as you can. In any case, information, no matter how bad, could be useful in the right light. For example, shutting out the terrorist information is like an ostrich hiding it's head in the sand. You might need that information sooner or later in case there is a plot to attack a country. In essence, info online is the life-force online. No one should realistlicly be able to control your actions that way. It's like a psuedo-slavery. But that's just my 2 cents.

    I think that's perhaps a little strong ... it's more of an increasingly vocal pressure group.

    Mr. Barlow's, A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace sounds more like Ayn Rand than Karl Marx. Perhaps he is the John Galt (Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, 1957) of the Internet.
