Internet Access: A Basic Human Right

Amazing. I’m not disagreeing, but it’s really amazing, when you think about it, that the Internet has become so central to human culture in such a short period of time that the UN is essentially declaring it a necessary human right. Think about all the other culture-shifting technologies, like air travel, for example, that have been around much longer and don’t have this kind of status.
