While we first thought that the Internet would empower the powerless, the reality is much more complicated.  Both government and corporate power dominate today's Internet even as distributed groups gain in power. This talk examines the various ways power manifests itself in the Internet, and how security both allows the powerful to remain so while permitting the powerless to thrive as well.  On the Internet, data equals power, and the dynamic between the various forces is the fundamental societal issue of the Information Age.
