consent of the networked
Consent of the Networked

MacKinnon's first book, Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle For Internet Freedom (ISBN 978-0465024421), was published by Basic Books in January 2012. In an interview, she said that she argues in the book (among other things) that:[12]

We cannot assume that the Internet will evolve automatically in a direction that is going to be compatible with democracy. It depends on how the technology is structured, governed, and used. Governments and corporations are working actively to shape the Internet to fit their own needs. The most insidious situations arise when both government and corporations combine their efforts to exercise power over the same people at the same time, in largely unconstrained and unaccountable ways. This is why I argue that if we the people do not wake up and fight for the protection of our own rights and interests on the Internet, we should not be surprised to wake up one day to find that they have been programmed, legislated, and sold away.
