From my perspective, probably the most important digital divide is not access to a box. It’s the ability to be empowered with the language that that box works in. Otherwise only a very few people can write with this language, and all the rest of us are reduced to being read-only. -- Elizabeth Daley (Quote by Lawrence Lessig), "Free Culture'
There has never been a time in our history when more of our “culture” was as “owned” as it is now. And yet there has never been a time when the concentration of power to control the uses of culture has been as unquestioningly accepted as it is now.
-- Lawrence Lessig, 'Free Culture'
So what is this mind of ours: what are these atoms with consciousness? Last week’s

Scientific knowledge is an enabling power to do
either good or bad - but it does not carry instructions on how to use it.
