The Internet is not ALL bad

I love reading stuff by Dan Gillmor. His latest column for Silicon Valley, Remembering the People Who Give Back to the Net, and All of Us is a nice reminder that while the Internet has a lot of nasty folks doing nasty things, there's a lot more good out there than bad. He cites a couple of examples of this, not least of which was Verisign's decision effectively to hijack the world's DNS servers, promptly fixed by Paul Vixie's release of a patch to BIND to mitigate against Verisign's act of vandalism. It's nice, every now and then, to read nice things about the Internet now and then!
