I'm impressed that you got to 4096 with such a disorganized board.

I would despair about the future of net neutrality if other giants corporate interests weren't on the our side.  Which makes me sad about our government is that the only way we can trust them when there is enough money on the side of doing the right thing.

A non-neutral internet will eventually resemble either cable TV or the original AOL walled garden.

Probably closer to the truth.  Adjust for inflation as necessary.

Tech companies, particularly start-ups, will probably just increasingly move overseas if the telecommunications infrastructure in the US is unable to support their needs at a cost they're able to pay.

The rest of the world will move on and folks in the US will be stuck with content from whatever corporations cornered the market early on, accessed through an internet that would be viewed as obsolete in any other developed country.

Just the fact that they are trying to do this pisses me off. It's driven by nothing more than an overly obsessive desire for more money and power.

BoingBoing is the astroturf PR farm of Google.
