The insightful Cover Article in Time Magazine dated June 24, 2013 titled “The Informers; Why a New Generation of Hactivists Is Driven To Spill The Government’s Secrets” (also titled “The Geeks Who Leak”) by Michael Scherer mentions some other Internet Heroes besides all of those on my WordPress Collaborative Team.
My WordPress Collaborative Team and I wish to recognize these Internet Heroes (and all others as well).
Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, Aaron Shwartz, Julian Assange, and the hackivist group Anonymous are all heroes for either doing what they are doing or having done what they did on the Internet.
Both America and the World cry out for Openness and Truth, but those who speak the Truth or Allow the Truth to Be Seen on the Internet are often persecuted.
Despite knowing what they may face (imprisonment or death), some persons step up to the plate regardless and “do the morally right thing”. Their actions are heroic. No other word does justice here.
My WordPress Collaborative Internet Team and I also wish to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all those persons and Corporations (Thank you Google, WordPress (Automattic), Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Instagram, etc.) that believe in an Open and Free Internet, and are doing their best to insure it remain such.
Lastly, Thank You Micheal Scherer for the article in Time Magazine that you recently wrote. (And Thanks to Time Magazine for publishing it.)
Allen Darman (with help from his heroic WordPress Collaborative Internet Team)
