Obama’s Plan For The Internet Totally Forgets To Include Details

However, he seems totally psyched to have the Central Government out in place regulations and rules via unelected bureaucrats

(Kuntsevo Dacha) More than any other invention of our time, the Internet has unlocked possibilities we could just barely imagine a generation ago. And here’s a big reason we’ve seen such incredible growth and innovation: Most Internet providers have treated Internet traffic equally. That’s a principle known as “net neutrality” — and it says that an entrepreneur’s fledgling company should have the same chance to succeed as established corporations, and that access to a high school student’s blog shouldn’t be unfairly slowed down to make way for advertisers with more money.

Interestingly, all that was done without the heavy hand of Government,  especially without an un-seen and secretive plan which turns the Web into a 1930’s phone company.

Interestingly, as part of his 4 point sticky note “plan”, he discusses transparency, ironic after a this was all done without any transparency. Oh, and

If carefully designed, these rules should not create any undue burden for ISPs, and can have clear, monitored exceptions for reasonable network management and for specialized services such as dedicated, mission-critical networks serving a hospital. But combined, these rules mean everything for preserving the Internet’s openness.

So, “trust us”. Because government never is bad. You do have to like how there are “exemptions”. Uh huh. And carefully designed, from the same guy who had billions of dollars and still could get a website to work.

And to repeat: everything was fine beforehand. This is a solution in search of a problem.

BTW, to be clear, I’d appose any Republican that backed this obvious power grab.

    Yes, before you know it the nternet will run with the efficiency of the Post Office and the friendliness of the IRS.

    We are so screwed. We are no longer a nation of laws, we are ruled by the faceless ones – petty bureaucrats and anonymous officials writing regulations.
