Death of the Internet

My neighbor up the road in Shallow Alto, Lawrence Lessig, is bemoaning the "death of the internet" because the US Federal Communications Commission is going to allow a greater concentration of media outlets by single companies - the same people who own the newspaper can also own the TV station. Larry's journey to the left has been accomplished at a shrill level, which this latest diatribe does nothing to alleviate. Larry, Larry, Larry - the mere fact that both you and I can write and publish on the same topic shows that not only is the internet alive and well, but social discourse is at a level never before achieved. Dr. Pangloss was right!
