So, this is a really intresting discussion on how Guardian America did their visualisation of Gay Rights in the US by State. The decision to not do a map makes sense to me - while the data are spatial, the visualisation is more useful to the kind of data being presented. Top notch work! http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2012/may/10/data-visualisation-us-gay-rights?CMP=twt_fd

Vint Cerf weighs in:

"Improving the Internet is just one means, albeit an important one, by which to improve the human condition. It must be done with an appreciation for the civil and human rights that deserve protection — without pretending that access itself is such a right."

I agree that focusing on "the internet" from an engineering perspective, would miss the point of constituting a human right. But I don't think this report is using the term "Internet" in the same way as one of it's creators might. Online expression, and access to information and ideas, and many other things are what's at issue for the right to internet access. For lack of a better term, 'the internet' will encompass so much more than its TCP/IP roots for a long time to come.
