NOTES

1 Some scholars, such as Harvard Law School professor Jonathan Zittrain, have dedicated monographs to these questions, peeling away the various layers of ethical choices embedded in the creation of hardware and software, while also making an ethical argument in furtherance of the Internet's openness and “generativity.” See Zittrain, Jonathan, The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It (New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 2008). Others, like Evgeny Morozov, offer a more skeptical view of the technology's promises. See Morozov, Evgeny, The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom (New York: PublicAffairs, 2011). Such in-depth analytical and ethical treatments of the Internet remain exceptional, however.
