Net Neutrality Links
I’ve added these links to the Net Neutrality Page today.
The public deserves real discourse about this issue. People care about the internet. We should have a real conversation about the public policy implications of what we do with this platform upon which millions rely. And if we decide to hand it over to the telcos, so be it. But the press delivered first apathy, and then warmed over spin and lies. That’s not democracy. That’s not journalism. It’s stenography.
I wanted to believe that the press were working the public’s interest. I really did. I no longer believe this, because of writers like Peter Svennson.
Basically, what follows is my analysis of a little site called “dontregulate.org”. They seem inocuous. They’ve got ads going through blogads.org, which, MLW, Booman, and other lefty sites, including ActForLove, use to get ads based upon their sites. Now, they’ve got this fascinating flash video to start the site, and from there, it just turns into arguments against net neutrality, looking all like it’s a regular internet site that regular people put up, with regular drawings and Flash movies…
For more info, SaveTheInternet has also made it the big lie of the week
But, in a couple of months time, itÃ¢â¬â¢s likely that all TechCrunch will have to do is pi** off a large Telco or two (or a congressman in a back pocket) and, ‘voilaÃ¢â¬â¢, you and I wonÃ¢â¬â¢t be able to visit them anymore, anyway.
