The Power of the Internet

I don’t know about the Matrix, but the big question about the Internet is how long it will take for corporations to figure out how to co-opt it, the same way they did the media, restaurants, and rock & roll.

    Not long. I’ve heard a number of ads on the radio for companies that will build a better reputation for you online. They advertise how they will block unfavorable content and will promote positive content for businesses and individuals. Since SOPA is off the table, this is how the internet will be controlled in the future. Just wait until your ISP is allowed to block sites and content of their competitors, or your cable provider can stop showing you advertisements for satellite programming.
