Weekend read: Internet platform hegemony and free speech

It seems almost a little wrong to select something a friend wrote for my recommended weekend read… but this is my blog, and I make the rules. So this week, I’ve selected James O’Malley’s thoughtful blog post about the hegemony of social media and the potential danger the emerging situation poses to the concept of free speech. He poses more questions than he answers, but in so-doing he made me consider restrictions on free speech from a somewhat different point of view.
