Techdirt Podcast Episode 266: In Defense Of Section 230 & A Decentralized Internet

from the we're-back dept

The podcast went on pause over the holidays and amidst the deluge of... events — but now we're back! And to kick things off, we've got a cross-post from Nick Gillespie's Reason podcast. Mike recently joined Nick for an interview about Section 230 and why a decentralized internet is better than a heavily-restricted one, and you can listen to the whole thing on this week's episode of the Techdirt Podcast.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    com e on now! untilpoliticians stop doing what they're told by big business and start doing what is right for everyone, including getting some grey matter themselves, no amount of articles and speeches about the rights of and good of Section 230 is ever going to do any good! if those who keep wanting to remove it actually understand it, there cant be any excuse except they are working for industry and/or lining their own pockets. if they dont understand it, what the fuck are they so upset about anyway?
