Lets take back the internet! Rebecca MacKinnon on TED.com

The first TEDTalk posted from TEDGlobal 2011, happening now in Edinburgh:

In this powerful talk, Rebecca MacKinnon describes the expanding struggle for freedom and control in cyberspace, and asks: How do we design the next phase of the Internet with accountability and freedom at its core, rather than control? She believes the internet is headed for a “Magna Carta” moment when citizens around the world demand that their governments protect free speech and their right to connection. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2011, July 2011, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Duration: 14:52)
