Brown Bagging the Net
Suberb essay over at The Technology Liberation Front dissecting articles from Larry Lessig and Jeffrey Rosen about obscenity on the Internet. I left a little comment, less to add my own thoughts, but more to refute someone else’s. Nice guy I am, right? After reading these essays, I’m flabbergasted. The word “filter” came up 12 times in this essay, with all kind of First Amendment implications being discussed. You’ve got to be kidding me, right? Filters are optional! I don’t use a filter. No one has to use a filter. So how’d this become a central part of the discussion?
