Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
IÃ¢â¬â¢ve written a little about the Net Neutrality debate , and posted some Blog entries bout it Ã¢â¬â e.g. here, here and here. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a complex and interesting subject, and politicians have clearly had difficulty getting their heads around it. So I was interested to see how Wikipedia would approach the topic.
The entry seemed to me to be a model of its kind Ã¢â¬â well-informed, mostly well-referenced and balanced. But its Ã¢â¬ËneutralityÃ¢â¬â¢ has been challenged and has triggered WikipediaÃ¢â¬â¢s discussion process. The discussion page on the issue is fascinating. HereÃ¢â¬â¢s the bit about the bias complaint. . . .
[What follows is the challenge process at Wikipedia.]
ItÃ¢â¬â¢s always irritating to have oneÃ¢â¬â¢s views changed by other peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s better arguments, but this discussion has caused me to re-evaluate the original entry. I think the point about Ã¢â¬ËframingÃ¢â¬â¢ is right. WouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t it be nice if all public debate about complex issues were conducted this way? Then we really would have a deliberative democracy. IÃ¢â¬â¢m always puzzled by peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s hostility to Wikipedia: to me, it looks like one of the best things to have emerged from the Net.
