I joined Madeleine Brand, host of KCRW's Press Play, to talk about this week's internet headlines: "It's been just over a week since the deadly shooting at France's Charlie Hebdo magazine. Hundreds of thousands have been gathering daily in Paris to mourn the killings and applaud the magazine's brave stance on free speech. But now, French authorities have arrested a controversial comedian named Dieudonne, who violated the country's strict laws against racist speech with an apparently anti-Semitic Facebook post. We talk about that and other web news in our weekly Internet roundup." Listen here.
We also talked about the presidential push to toughen cybercrime laws (at the expense of privacy and other digital rights, I predict), and That Wired Memo, which Rob Beschizza so artfully and dramatically interpreted. Denton called it "purely fascistic," but we call it pure fun.
