Net

Susan Crawford Blog有一篇十分有趣的文章「Net Ecology Day」,每年有一天我們在網絡上發表對這個網絡的關懷。

Susan文中表示,現在我們面對互聯網的問題,就只是去監管。大家只管說它是洪水猛獸,然後進行規範、訴訟或立法「管治」,可是卻沒有人想想如何保護互聯網的生態。她以Sen. Gaylord Nelson成功建立Earth Day作例子,希望關心互聯網的人可以有所表示。

It’s my belief that the ecology of the net is deeply threatened. It’s not just the attacks on P2P networks or government thoughts about requiring authentication as a condition of online life — although these developments and others give rise to concern — it’s about what seems to be a general sense that the net is a dark and dangerous place. A seedy place. A place that needs to be constrained.

其實這就如Fred von Lohmann在Law.com發表的文章「Is Suing Your Customers a Good Idea?」所提出的問題,不停控制用戶就是解決方法嗎?我可以說,斷乎不是。

當一日法例、訴訟充斥互聯網時,我們的互聯網便不會再有新意、不會再有趣。那時還會有像Blog這類的Killer App出現嗎?

若同意Susan Crawford之想法的話,我建議大家可透過Comments或Trackback對她表示支持。
