“The nation’s largest telephone and cable companies are crafting an alarming set of strategies that would transform the free, open and nondiscriminatory Internet of today to a privately run and branded service that would charge a fee for virtually everything we do online.”
I’ve read articles like this a couple of times before. The real question is whether such a plan could be implemented “en masse” in a short amount of time. If even a small part of the Internet was left uncontrolled, market economics would drive everyone there.
I also wonder what this would mean for blogs.
