    Article about the future of the Internet (and Gov't regulation thereof)

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13808101/wid/11915829/

    There's a lot here to discuss, folks.

    I don't like the idea of the government getting involved AT ALL, though I suppose the politicos were just itching to get their fingers in the pie somehow. I guess it was inevitable.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I have mixed feelings about this issue. I know that the free market generally works itself out and I like the idea of hastening the roll out of fiber to the household level. On the other hand, I don't trust the telecom industry to act in the consumer's best interest and I expect the government to keep an eye on them although not impose legislation unnecessarily. Unfortunately few of our lawmakers are up to the task (see the "series of tubes" comment).

    As long as they don't mess with our Mice Chat and don't take any of my personal information, then I am cool.
