In this powerful talk from TEDGlobal, Rebecca MacKinnon describes the expanding struggle for freedom and control in cyberspace, and asks: How do we design the next phase of the Internet with accountability and freedom at its core, rather than control? She believes the internet is headed for a “Magna Carta” moment when citizens around the world demand that their governments protect free speech and their right to connection.

I hope so – but since 2011, it has only got worse …. and the majority of people don’t even know what is being done against their interests – much less understand the implications, possibilities and challenges. I am not sure if it is because they can’t think it through, or just can’t be bothered.

“Big Brother” used to refer to the government. Now it seems to apply to large firms both in technology as well as other fields. I hope we are not too consumed by daily pressures to pay attention to today’s challenges.

Right on target (as usual) Mary! We are surrounded by any number of “big brothers” these days…
