A judge just broke the internet

Apparently making websites friendly to people with disabilities is the end of the internet as we know it.

From Forbes

The Declaration of Internet Freedom will save the internet from being broken

The “jargon-free” declaration, building on the success in preventing SOPA and PIPA from Breaking the Internet, is to “prevent Congress from passing legislation … that infringes on personal freedom” also seems meaning-free. It’s as if Bill and Ted had written the Bill of Rights… “Be Excellent to Each Other”.  Particularly pleased to see that “defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used” is a core tenet because it is a strong endorsement of copyright. Hurrah!
