Here's what we're talking about at techPresident on Internet Freedom Day: The "existential threat" to the Internet that was SOPA/PIPA isn't the only kind of cause that carries across the web. On the flipside, advocates seemed to have trouble creating as much fervor over the ITU fight in December than we saw a year ago today.

So what makes an issue or a campaign into something that really carries online? Here's a quick look at what we're thinking. What are your thoughts?

There are "benighted corners of the news cycle?" Cycles are round and don't have corners. "We wield a weird sword these days?" As opposed to the jailhouse shank that nobody said anything about? "... [L]ots of posts is the low-hanging fruit in the orchard of traffic?" You don't need to bend over backwards like this just to reach subject-verb agreement, that easily uprooted potato in the garden of grammar.

There are lots of problems with technology journalism, but could we start, please, by fixing issues of style and usage?

Cat, where story will go two days after publication.
So I'm on the phone with a reporter with the Financial Times, working from home, and what do I see? This. I had to pause the interview to laugh and show my wife -- fortunately the reporter was a good sport.
