Vint Cerf (New York Times op-ed): "Keep the Internet Open"

http://j.mp/KF9pSc  (New York Times)

  "The Internet stands at a crossroads. Built from the bottom up, powered
   by the people, it has become a powerful economic engine and a positive
   social force. But its success has generated a worrying backlash.
   Around the world, repressive regimes are putting in place or proposing
   measures that restrict free expression and affect fundamental rights.
   The number of governments that censor Internet content has grown to 40
   today from about four in 2002. And this number is still growing,
   threatening to take away the Internet as you and I have known it."

An indubitably accurate assessment.
