Obama Wants to Control the Web

Susan CrawfordFrom Fox News:

If you thought Washington—which already took over banking and autos, and is fast-tracking attempts to take over health care and energy—would leave the Internet alone, you were dead wrong.  The Internet (perhaps our greatest free market success story in recent years) is squarely in the cross-hairs of the administration and it’s not waiting for Congress to act.  The charge is being led by an eager, ideologically committed White House staffer named Susan Crawford. Officially, she is the Special Assistant for Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy. Wired Magazine calls her, “the most powerful geek close to the president.”  In recent weeks, bloggers and online activists have begun calling Crawford the “Internet Czar.”  The shoe fits.

This is chilling news but it comes as no surprise to me.
