Thou broughtest us into the Net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

Well, the Internet conference in Tunis (why Tunis?) is wrapping up, and it appears the challenge to America's domination of Net governance has been turned aside for now.

I ran across this interview with Lawrence Lessig the other day and forgot to post about it. It's a very good interview; Lessig is certainly the guy to talk to about control of the Internet. It punctures many of the misconceptions about dividing control of the net, but still makes a case that America is better suited to making the decisions for now.

Bonus points if you can identify the quote in the title without Googling.
