It seems ironic to me that the greatest threat to the future viability of the Web may not be anti-smut crusaders but rather advocates for the disabled. Section 508 of the Workforce Investment Act makes it mandatory for any federal Web site, or the Web site for any company doing business with the federal government to be accessible to the disabled. The goal among advocates for the disabled is to apply this rull to all Web sites. Read this article from the Freedom Forum to get more information on this wrongheaded new government activity. The bottom line is that if the government enacts complex new regulations for Web publishing, many companies and people will simply opt not to publish, rather than going through the trouble of publishing in a compliant manner.
