My commentary isn’t related to the thesis of the essay, but this is something I have been curious about. As we experience more of our lives through digital expression on corporate lands is there the ability for the creation of a digital public space?
Facebook owns rights to my expression on its medium. They can remove what I say. My speech is not free.
While government run public space sounds more intrusive it will afford all of the protections of the constitution. It must. A corporation, as private entity, is free from these restrictions.
I have no possible solution or direction of thought in this regard. If the answer were clear to me I’d probably have to run for office.
