Creating an internet that rewards creativity
Yeah, because the current Internet doesn't reward creativity, right? You only find creativity in places like Teevee and movies. Oh, no, wait, those are formulaic in the extreme for the most part.
And yet, on this Internet that doesn't reward creativity, we have people collaborating to make 3D movies and we have people becoming famous and being significantly financially rewarded through youtube (e.g. ask a ninja).
Then we have the people carving out their fame with new ways to put people in touch with each other, great uses of GIS technology and lord only knows how many other things.
And that's before we look at the people who build the opensource tools that in many cases make the Internet work (apache, bind, exim, etc.), all putting their creative and technical brilliance out for all to see.
But yeah, let's pass laws that allow some coke snorting record exec to have my connection interrupted and interfered with for my CentOS and Ubuntu seeds.
How on earth does David Cameron think that buddying up with these maroons will make him more popular with the yoof of today?
