Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] We have recently seen how many thousands of people are willing to protest against rules which they see as constraining the openness and innovation of the Internet. This is a strong new political voice. And as a force for openness, I welcome it, even if I do not always agree with everything it says on every subject. We are now likely to be in a world without SOPA and without ACTA. Now we need to find solutions to make the Internet a place of freedom, openness, and innovation fit for all citizens, not just for the techno avant-garde.
The believe that the internet is a place of freedom only for some avantgarde is another bubble. Most of the people alreade are online and a big number is unleashing its creative potential without being a programmer. Just think of mom or wine blogs...
