Google has been global for some time, probably since its inception. At the bottom of Google this morning is this plea: Love the free and open Internet? Tell the world’s governments to keep it that way. Which leads to a petition and a map showing who is supporting this movement. The message boils down to: A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. Governments alone, working behind closed doors, should not direct its future. The billions of people around the globe who use the Internet should have a voice. I don’t sign these sort of things, but I support the spirit of this movement.
