My name is Mutsumi Tagami. Let me ask you a question right away. I agree with your assertion that digitization leads to democracy, and I am concerned about it. Will governments everywhere be able to shut down the Internet in the event of an emergency? Is there a mechanism that allows an individual to have direct access to another individual and information? Hypothetically, I am concerned about whether we will be able to send out information to our friends around the world via email and social networking sites before the Japanese government takes control of our speech.
