Submission + - Activists top 2013 class of Internet Hall of Fame inductees

gnujoshua writes: The Internet Hall of Fame inducted 32 new members, today. This years class had a number of "policy innovators" and activists including Aaron Swartz (posthumous), John Perry Barlow, Jimmy Wales, and Richard M. Stallman.

Stallman had this to say upon his induction, "Now that we have made the Internet work, the next task is to stop it from being a platform for massive surveillance, and make it work in a way that respects human rights, including privacy."

"What people have been reduced to are mere 3-D representations of their own data." -- Arthur Miller
