The Internet is Not a Force of Nature: A Q&A With Rebecca Mackinnon | Publishers Weekly

January 27, 2012 |
In Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom, out on Jan. 30 from Basic Books, Internet policy researcher and advocate Rebecca MacKinnon dissects the complicated issues surrounding civil rights, democracy, and the rise of internet institutions like Google, Facebook, and Twitter—institutions which aren’t always looking out for the best interests of their users. The Tip Sheet caught up with the busy author, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan think tank New America Foundation, to discuss the latest political news from the cyber-frontier.
