        • Or should the manufacturer trust us to make decisions for ourselves?
    • How To Stop It
    • Some Ways we can prevent its’ future
      • Close or tighten it (Not a very good idea)
      • Virtual Machines (Red & Green)
        • Red for work, Green for play
      • Scarcity (caps on broadband)
        • People will browse less recklessly
      • Wiki Codes (Collaboration)
        • More people could share the responsbility of security

        • Would make more secure software
      • Legal Incentives
      • Warnings (“This Site May Harm Your Computer”)
    • Strategies

      • Net Neutrality
        • Equal access to the internet, no restrictions
      • Maintaining Privacy
      • Changing Code Policies
        • Anyone suspecting infringement must sue within a year of discovering code
    • To Conclude
      • It’s not the internet itself Zittrain is worried about
        • It’s the way it is headed
          • The control
          • The privacy
          • The security
      • Zittrain is calling for a change in the way the internet works.
