I really enjoyed your article (http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/02/201228715322807.html). I graduated from Trent University in 1992 with a degree in Political Studies and subsequently studied (but didn’t finish) a “Computer Math” degree at Carleton University. I have been working primarily as a Linux Systems Admin since 1995.
It’s rare to find somebody who is able to bridge the political and technical. Your work is one of the best examples of this I’ve seen. Great work!!
I encourage you to also focus on the inherent decentralization of the underlying network that forms the raw communications infrastructure of the Internet: You connect your network to mine and subsequently operate independently!! Amazing, empowering, exciting!! Combined with industrial grade, freely available cryptography this decentralization has exciting possibilities for “Jane Average”.
I was *SO* encouraged by Egypt and what I see in other parts of the world and I question whether national governments can feasibly even put this Pandora back into the box. I believe the best they can do is “opt out” and even then, is it really a viable choice? I doubt Canadians would tolerate such a move.
Keep up the good work!!
