Can you put the genie back in the bottle?

For a long time, Google co-founder Sergey Brin thought that you couldn’t. He thought that the internet was a force that had been unleashed upon the world, and no authority could ever put an effective control on it. But now, he says, he’s not so sure.

In interviews with The Guardian,Brin talks about how he thinks that the free internet is about to go through a dangerous gauntlet that might have the potential to break the world wide web as we have come to know it.

Brin points to three major factors that could start restricting the internet – state actors like China, Hollywood and it’s anti-piracy efforts, and companies like Facebook and Apple that put themselves in between users and the information on the internet.

We’re coming to a real fork in the road. SOPA, PIPA, CISPA – it seems like legislation to change the equation of information on the internet isn’t going to stop coming, and neither supporters or detractors are willing to budge an inch on some of the most basic philosophical questions at stake. Megaupload won’t be the last site to come under the fist of government intervention, and groups like Anonymous is only be getting started in their opposition to those same forces.
