Walt’s column this week proposes a plan to change how the internet is managed, regulated, and operated. He suggests that the US government should preserve the internet in a similar fashion to how natural resources are protected. This week on Ctrl-Walt-Delete, Nilay and Walt discuss what we need to change, and possible solutions for the problems politicians and major corporations are debatably only blocking.
