Internet? Freedom? Privacy? … What do you need?

Susan Crawford of the Obama administration, kicked off CFP presentations Tuesday morning with a striking anecdote. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal quoted 37-year-old homeless man Charles Pitts:

“You don’t need a TV. You don’t need a radio. You don’t even need a newspaper. But you need the Internet.”

It begs the question of all of us … what do you need?

An Internet connection?

A mobile phone?

An encrypted email service?
