More on Network Neutrality
If the big telcom companies get their way and we lose network neutrality, that could affect libraries, library users, and users of digital government information. Two interesting pieces provide some interesting facts and perspective on the issues:
- Net Neutrality, the Kojo Nnamdi Show, WAMU FM (audio) May 9, 2006
Guests include two proponents of network neutrality, Edward W. Felten, a professor at Princeton University, and Gigi B. Sohn, president of Public Knowledge.
- What the Misguided Have Missed Regarding Network Neutrality, by Craig Fields is Director of Internet Operations for Gun Owners of America, The Conservative Voice, May 09, 2006
The concept of Network Neutrality has unfortunately been misunderstood by many conservatives, libertarians, and other champions of the free market. That’s too bad, because the free market essence of the Internet is exactly what would be lost without Network Neutrality.
