MoJo Wire To Host Online Debate on Cyberlibertarianism

Is one of the country's biggest recipients of government largesse biting
the hand that feeds it? Paulina Borsook, who takes cyberlibertarians to
task in the July/August issue of Mother Jones magazine, will take part in
an online debate about her controversial article on the MoJo Wire, from
August 1 to August 6.

The article and dialog can be accessed at http://www.motherjones.com.

Borsook argues that the Net, in fact, owes a tremendous debt to government
subsidies and likens Net libertarians to "privileged, spoiled teenagers"
who "haven't a clue what their existence would be like without the bounty
showered on them." She will check in on the discussion and respond to
comments between the first and the sixth.
