Very true. I have not read the McChesney book you cited, but as a former
broadcaster I'm familiar with the history of the times. Most people alive
today are unaware that an entire government agency (the Federal Communications
Commission) was set up as a direct result of those problems. Following that
reasoning, if the 'Net continues to become more chaotic as it continues to
grow, we can expect the federal government to create a set of regulations that
will govern behavior.

Not this year, probably not next year, but it -could- happen.
