Consent of the Networked
Author Rebecca MacKinnon discusses her recent book, Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom, with Christopher Avery of the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre. Her central point is that the Internet is not a force of nature: It is an accumulation of human decisions—by engineers, regulators, and lawyers. It is thus incumbent upon civil society to guide the development of an Internet that is compatible with democracy and human rights.
