[OreillyRadar] Why the eG8 mattered to the future of the Internet and society

[...] This past week, the official communiqué released by the summit of the Gang of Eight industrial nations, or G8, hailed the importance of the Internet to the world's citizens in the 21st century ahead

I spoke with Jérémie Zimmermann, co-founder and spokesperson for citizen advocacy group LaQuadrature du Net. For many Internet users, this interview should be by turns illuminating and provocative. "Everywhere you look, you see governments attacking the Internet," said Zimmerman.

If an open Internet is the basis for democracy flourishing around the world, billions of people will be counting upon them to be up to the challenge.
