Pay Per Link


New Yorker article on attempts by big broadband companies to institute "tiered access" for online browsing

For too long, the internet has tried to get us to think that the sites offered by regular, non-paying entities (like people) are just as valuable as those offered by warm, loving corporations. Finally, Congress is going to step up and remind us of the important truism that AT&T Knows Best. We weren't that used to have to think of the internet as being a free-for-all of ideas that allows all different views to be exposed. And if we were, we'll get over it lickety-quick. I mean, who would want to go to Wikipedia when you could check out Microsoft's glorious Encarta online?

This just goes to prove what I've always said: the internet hates freedom.

Personally, I'm psyched for Comcast's proprietary search engine. No doubt it will be far superior to Google.

As this blog slowly (or quickly) atrophies, it's comments like this that makes it all worth while.
