If you're not worried about the FCC's threat to dismantle net neutrality, you should be. http://ow.ly/w8L3Z

In a drastic policy reversal, the FCC is proposing to quash net neutrality rules in the U.S. This ruling could spell the beginning of the end of the open Internet in the U.S., severely limiting access to content for everyday users and stifling innovation for startups and small businesses. What do you think of these proposed rule changes? Sound off in the comments. http://ow.ly/w60ez
Planned new rules would allow an Internet provider to negotiate separately with content companies and charge them for priority service.

I have no problem with a end-system being able to signal what traffic gets which lane.  Many have made this seem that Net Neutrality is about lack of QoS.  It's not.  It's about who controls the QoS. It has to be open to all end points to signal and control.  That means that if I'm a comcast or bell or wind customer, that I get to control what packets go where. If I want port-80 traffic to my home (or even port-139), then I get it.  If I want traffic from well known spam sites to be "less than best effort", then that's also my decision.
It also means that Disney or Netflix or Adbusters can become Comcast or Bell customers and purchase bandwidth. (Adbusters has been denied access to purchase ad time multiple times).  
Should everyone get the same rates?  Not sure.  Should the rates be published with equitable access? Yes.
This plan does nothing.  Give us real QoS please.

An Internet censorship plan is being finalized in secret meetings right now. Obama himself is in secretive meetings with key political figures and lobbyists in Asia to lock the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s Internet censorship plan into place. We know we can stop this - but we need to act right now. Please SHARE this image, and stay tuned for more developments.

Why is the TPP being negotiated in secret? Because no one would ratify it if it was out in the open. Our own Chris Malmo tells it like it is: http://ow.ly/w651k
As U.S. President Barack Obama talks trade and geopolitics in Japan and East Asia, mainstream press coverage of the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) isn’t telling the full story. Articles mainly focus on domestic politics, or a “U.S. vs. Japan” boxing match narrative about tariffs on autos, beef, rice, and wheat. While it’s nice that Obama’s trip has finally given big media outlets a reason to cover the TPP, they’re doing their readers ...
