Retake the Net

Dave Weinberger:

For many people, the Net now feels like just another way commercial media feed us content and toys. We can treat it like that. Or we can remember the Net’s original and true essence: it is a set of connections open to anyone. We have built wonders with it. Those days are far from over. But we have to take back the idea and meaning of the Net. We have to make sure that it stays open to everyone, every idea, and every connection.

From friend-of-the-blog Halley Suitt Tucker’s interview with the New Clues duo.

Worth bearing in mind that they’re not saying that the Net can’t be a means of finding commercial content and toys – just that it should be more than just that.
