How is the Internet organized? Is it a democracy? Or is it increasingly controlled by large media corporations bent on limiting what people can do or see on various websites? These are valid questions, and the Center for Digital Democracy (CDD) is intimately involved with such matters. Founded in 2001, the CDD has worked on developing the campaign for an open broadband Internet, along with leading efforts at the Federal Trade Commission "to promote new polices governing online privacy and responsible interactive marketing practices." Visitors can learn about these initiatives and others through sections on the site that include "Current Projects", "Resources", and "Issues". Actually, the "Issues" section is probably the best place to start as it contains brief overviews about key issues such as broadband access, journalistic integrity in a new media environment, and so on. Moving on, their series of up-to-the minute news coverage on their homepage is also very good and inspired guests should also look over the "Get Involved" section.
