In light of the recent remarkable revelations about the reach of the
surveillance state, I will reflect on what it really means to be
connected to the Internet. As I wrote in the 50th Anniversary Issue of
the NY Review of Books, “There is so much that has been good–which is
to say useful, entertaining, inspiring, lucrative, fun–about the
evolution of the World Wide Web–that questions about equity and
inequality may seem to be beside the point. But while we were having
fun, we have happily and willingly made the greatest surveillance
system ever imagined, a web whose strings gives governments and
businesses countless threads to pull…”
