Discussion:  Issace Wilder, founder of the Free Network Foundation, is aiming to decentralize the internet so that it cannot be controlled and monitored by corporate or governmental regulating bodies.  His non-profit foundation is trying to prevent the actual physical internet from being consolidated and controlled by a few corporate transit networks, while also trying to publicize the fact that the internet is becoming increasingly centralized.  The problem, as Wilder sees it, with having a few corporate owners control the interent, is that there is no privacy and government censorship and interference is left to run wild.
