Tech at Night: It’s better for government to inform than to regulate, CWA dishes out talking points, Backlash against copyright freeloaders
Mary Bono Mack, pay attention: Here’s the model for any privacy ventures you should attempt: voluntary action by private individuals, educated by simple government actions. If you really must get government involved, teach the people to fish, so that they can protect their own privacy for a lifetime.
