Does The FCC Really Not Get It About The Internet?

The people making decisions at the FCC have their heads so far up their ass, I don't think they can get internet in there. I think that's probably why they don't "get it." wink

The key to an open Internet is nondiscrimination and in particular, a prohibition on discrimination or prioritization based on the identity of the user (sender/receiver) or use (application/content). I explain why at length in my book, Infrastructure: The Social Value of Shared Resources (2012). Unfortunately, the rules now being considered by the FCC don’t come close to implementing this simple and important benchmark.
