  2. […] Susan Crawford has posted an article entitled: When The Man-In-The-Middle Wants Money, a succinct look at what DPI is really about and why we should care: Say you’re walking down the sidewalk having a talk with your best friend about all kinds of things. What if you found out later that the sidewalk you were using wasn’t really a sidewalk – but instead a kind of false-front giant copying machine, unobtrusively vacuuming up what you were saying and adding to its database of information about you? Or, say you send a letter to a client of yours (to the extent you still do this), and it turns out later that your letter was intercepted, steamed open, and the contents were read. Or, say you are having a telephone conversation with someone named Peter Brown and it turns out later that the voice you heard on the other end of the line wasn’t Peter Brown at all but instead some sounds aimed at convincing you that Peter Brown was still on the line.

  16. Susan – Your ny times article is full of holes and here is why:
    1. Everybody has access to the to the Internet via their school or public library
    2. Restricted access is usually only for immoral sites, etc.
    3. Most people are really limited by their ability to buy things because they have limited funds
    4. All people rich or poor or black or white can have free access to most information
    5. Yes some people have it easier because they have access at home – similar to some folks have to ride a bus versus driving their own car – some people have to make an extra effort
    I could go on and on, but I bet you still want the government to step in give everyone a high s peed service versus them earning it!
