Freedom to Connect

This video is an articulate defense of the freedom to connect, and a well-told, real-world story of people working together.

In honor of the life and contributions of the activist Aaron Swartz, and in honor of our customers in thousands of communities who work to connect people every day.

(Freedom to Connect Conference, May 2012)


He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.

That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breath, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation.
