Excerpt from Al Gore’s new book (amazing)

I might actually buy this one because I totally wrote a paper about this, but alas, I missed the book deal:

Fortunately, the Internet has the potential to revitalize the role played by the people in our constitutional framework. It has extremely low entry barriers for individuals. It is the most interactive medium in history and the one with the greatest potential for connecting individuals to one another and to a universe of knowledge. It’s a platform for pursuing the truth, and the decentralized creation and distribution of ideas, in the same way that markets are a decentralized mechanism for the creation and distribution of goods and services. It’s a platform, in other words, for reason.

Book excerpt: The Assault on Reason [via Time]
