Take Back the Net

Take Back the Net: “Early this decade, several new communication tools bubbled up from the far reaches of the Internet. These were tools that could at long last fulfill the Web’s initial promise, nurturing a free exchange of ideas. With blogs, short for Web logs, anyone can now stream ideas onto a Web page in a matter of seconds. With wikis, named after the Hawaiian word for quick, entire groups can easily post and edit pages, freeing the users from the constraints of discussion groups. With RSS, anyone can easily syndicate material across the Web and alert readers to updated content on his or her site.”
