Shirky

Gets it wrong again - encryption is not a parallel to Prohibition. He needs to take a closer look at the corporate forces which have more or less agreed to lock down the Net in the next 2-3 years. When they do this, encryption won't mean a thing, beyond the 2% of the population that is able to subvert the hypercapitalist infostructure.

For the other 98%, doing so will simply be too costly - the transaction and search costs of making deals will have been pushed through the roof.
