Letter to the Editor: Social media and the WWW
I am no hater of new technology. I used the new, computer driven world in my work and I use it today as a retired guy. But this international, free-flowing web thing is a new and different animal, and it is out of control. The World Wide Web was designed to be completely without government control of any kind. The little tech wizards from academia and the west coast set about to create a completely new thing. Now we stuff everything including our entire banking and financial system through that maze of cables. Anyone can tap into that system anywhere in the world. Our planes, trains and automobiles can be run through this thing. This includes our entire defense system. The electrical grid is run through this unregulated hodgepodge mess.
