One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.
- Sigmund Freud (via vanadia)
Government and industry have betrayed the Internet, and us.
By subverting the Internet at every level to make it a vast, multi-layered and robust surveillance platform, the NSA has undermined a fundamental social contract. The companies that build and manage our Internet infrastructure, the companies that create and sell us our hardware and software, or the companies that host our data: we can no longer trust them to be ethical Internet stewards.
This is not the Internet the world needs, or the Internet its creators envisioned. We need to take it back. And by we, I mean the engineering community.
Measure out a life
and pour me right into it,
mix us together.
