Terror in Paris must not lead to Internet clampdowns – CNET – Cyber Parse

The Eiffel Tower in French flag colors after the terrorist attacks of November 13

Stephen Shankland/CNETOn the night of Friday the 13th of November, 130 people died in terrorist attacks in Paris, where I live. A month later, I’m less worried about terrorists with a medieval worldview than I am about politicians of Western democracies.Don’t get me wrong.

The attacks were barbaric, and I don’t mean to minimize them or the suffering of those affected. But when it comes to harming communication, commerce, culture and civilization in general, the attacks are just a dent. The more lasting damage could be the effect those attacks have on the future of the Internet.
