By bringing people closer together than ever before, the internet magnifies the age-old questions about power and trust. Rebecca MacKinnon refers to citizens of the global digital web as "the networked," and argues that our information is being given up with no consent. The wars over privacy and personal data are about more than just money -- they're about who is in control of the next frontier. The clash of governments, businesses, and individuals has lead Jonathan Zittrain, co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, to ask, "can the internet regulate itself?" As Zittrain points out, the question is really a new way of asking "can we govern ourselves?" He throws out the conventional wisdom that the internet is anti-hierarchical, arguing that the internet is in fact the opposite, but that it's a bottom-up kind of power, for now. This could change at any time, though, which is why we need government to regulate the internet sometimes. Dominic Basulto explores whether the freedom to connect is an inalienable human right in the 21st century.
