Internet & Networking "John Perry Barlow - EFF co-founder, Grateful Dead lyricist, and, improbably, now a rancher - arrived in Paris and began tweeting up a storm from the e-G8 summit gathered there this week to discuss the future of the Internet." Incredible what Sarkozy is planning - how about he focus on the many problems in France the people there are actually suffering from?

"how about he focus on the many problems in France the people there are actually suffering from?"
That's a very good question. But considering that he worsened some of them in a totally voluntary fashion, in order to please the biggest pockets, I think he doesn't exactly care that much about what you and me call "the people".

In France, people who have the most problems don't vote. And, to make matter worses, Sarkozy also had no serious competition at election time...

Maybe the upcoming ones will be better. The sudden rise of the green party in the last few years might lead to interesting results, though they won't win alone. Or maybe a weird twist of fate will make Marine score the most as the biggest parties tear apart...
