Everyone’s favorite state to hate, and oddly enough, move to, is seriously considering creating its own version of the internet. This past July, California followed the EU and signed into action several laws that give more control to internet users and protect privacy. Basically, the Golden State is taking net neutrality to heart and gathering momentum for a state-governed web that could lead the way for a national movement.

With data scandals, internet bots, and information censorship, this could very well be the path for states across the nation.

We’re undermining what’s good about the internet, the ability to offer services anywhere, the permissionless innovation idea.
