David Post on netizenship and the state of the internet

by on May 19, 2010 · 0 comments

In this week’s episode of the Surprisingly Free Podcast, I talk to David Post, the I. Herman Stern Professor of Law at the Beasley School of Law at Temple University and author of In Search of Jefferson’s Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace. He discusses the general state of the internet and contrasts a decentralized Jeffersonian approach to the internet with a more centralized Hamiltonian one. He also addresses netizenship, open vs. closed systems, and online global relations.
