Did the Early Internet Activists Blow It? via @GeoffWozniak

Summary: Mike Godwin, an internet lawyer who first joined EFF in 1990 and worked for the Wikimedia Foundation, gives his take about the nexus of internet freedom of speech, censorship, large corporations and governments - from the 1990s to 2020 - giving autobiographical narrative for context. He addresses one journalist's popular opinion that there is "too much freedom of speech" on the Internet and that more regulation and control is needed. He argues for more freedom of speech and expression on the Internet without offering any more concrete solutions than Wikipedia.
