New, Improved Internet!

Just in case the net neutrality argument was too abstract for you before.

This is exactly what AT&T and the DOJ envision when they see the future of the Internet. And when they realize their vision, the American Samizdat will indeed be the mimeograph machine.

It's taking them longer than I thought it would. They've been pushing from the get-go to make it a broadcast medium more like television. And it's taken them a very long time to finally realize that nobody is going to pay for content they create when better content is available for free. So, OK, so they think, "let's charge something for the better free content somehow."

One of my new favorite Dylan lines is, "It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there."

I'm hearing Joni Mitchell:

"Don't it always seem to go, you don't know what you got 'till its gone."

When the Internet is a parking lot, old coots like us will be telling the youngsters about the paradise lost, where anybody could post content, and sometimes thousands or even millions of people could see it. Will they believe us?
