Ever notice how the farther a technology moves from introduction to “maturity” the more restrictions are put on it and the less we are allowed to do with said technology?
IE: The internet, guns, digital music, DVDs, software… Probably others as well.
I wonder if peoples (read: polititions and lawmakers) time would be better spent encouraging different and more varied uses for new technology instead of how to restrict how people can use it.
