    Oped, Editorial, Published on 07/11/2018

    » The future of the internet just 20 years ago could not have been rosier. When Thailand logged on, the technology promised and delivered instant communications. Beyond that, the gains are diminishing. The freedom to use the undoubted power of the technological revolution is diminishing. Huge companies and Big Government have inflicted new controls and censorship that were unthinkable in the days of "old media".
