Saving the Net III: Understanding its Frames | Linux Journal

Doc Searls makes an interesting argument about how the metaphors we use for the Internet/Web influence how we think about it. It contains an excellent set of references (e.g. Zittrain, Reed), so I'll be using this as starting point for my students as an aid to understanding the debates around the future of the Internet.
