  Net Neutrality disinformation campaign

This is funny - it's a Flash site sponsored by Telco companies who portray the net neutrality issue as a big set of government regulations backed by Google, Yahoo and Microsoft to ensure massive profits at the expense of the consumer. Um, Right.

Of course, it's actually perfectly perverse. The telcos are out-spending the technology companies in lobbying on this issue by a factor of 10. They are winning the battle to change the underlying nature of internet bandwidth to something they've dreamed of for years - a tiered model that let's them control traffic and charge more for access. The 3 major telcos in the US are desperate and screwing up the internet is gonna be no problem for them.

I don't think it'll be a catastrophe when they win, but it will hurt.

Hey - use Skype and call your Senator or Congressional rep today. Tell them what you think about the Telcos plan...
