F2C: Freedom to Connect, inaugurated in 2005, is a conference devoted to preserving and celebrating the essential properties of the Internet. The phrase Freedom to Connect is now official US foreign policy, thanks to Secretary of State Clinton, who said in 2010 “the idea that governments should not prevent people from connecting to the internet, to websites, or to each other. The freedom to connect is like the freedom of assembly, only in cyberspace.”
