Sucks, don;t it? Context, indeed.
It is a maxim that is almost intolerable these days, no?
No. The more people are inclined to shut-down services which make
the Internet 'the Internet', the less usable it is.
This whole situation needs a new approach -- the traditional
approach has failed, and I believe that Jon's maxim is just as
valid today as it was 2o years ago.
We need to think differently. Otherwise, this thing we love so much,
and sustains our libelyhoods, will cease to exist as we know it.
Speaking for myself, of course.
