From historic uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East to the Telecom mergers in the States, 2011 has already proven to be a pretty tumultuous year for the Internet… and we’ve still got 6 months to go.
Enter the new documentary #killswitch. The filmmakers at Akorn Entertainment aim to make the case that a free and open Internet is essential for democracy and they launched a kickstarter.com campaign to prove it. Topics of the film include: the special relationship between Internet Service Providers and the United States Government; media consolidation; Julian Assange and WikiLeaks; and the revolving door between governments and big media.
