For all you IT folks out there, although anyone who uses the internets will eventually be affected by however this turns out. A great article about the impending battle over the future of the internet between the broadband companies (who built the pipes) and the Googles/Microsofts/Yahoos of the world (who use said pipes for free). The AT&T/Comcasts of the world want to charge the others a premium for using their infrastructure.
Anyhow, it is very interesting and provides the point of view of both sides. It is Salon, but fear not Right Wingers, it's the Technology & Business section, so the horrible fungus of liberalism will wash off easily with some mild soap. For Salon 1st timers, you have to click on the ad after the 1st paragraph, then select 'enter salon' to get the rest of the article.
What do y'all think about this?
