What do we tell our kids?

10:07 pm Humor, Politics, Tech

I found this humorous blog post today over at Virtual Karma.

The author raises the question of what we will tell our kids about the Internet, if the telephone companies are successful in creating a multiple tier internet.

Although this is humorous, it is also the very sad reality of what the major telephone companies want to achieve.

Bell South, AT&T, and Verizon have all shown interest in providing a multi-tier Internet, in order to extort money from website owners.

The telephone companies look ready to take their plan to Capital Hill.

Keep a watch out for bills regarding this and other Internet freedom issues at the Electronic Frontier Foundation website.
