The Myth of the Decentralised Internet

I’ve just had my paper, The Myth of the Decentralised Internet, published in the Internet Policy Review. I’ve long been bothered by claims that the Internet will bring about a more just world simply through the force of its “decentralized” technology, which cannot be controlled (or so the claims say). This paper is my attempt at debunking this myth; and hopefully contributing to a conversation in which technology is only one component of a larger set of social-political-economic elements which structure power on the Internet.
