Free and slow to all

The government's stance on net neutrality issues is ironic, considering states' reliance on toll roads, FCC auctions of broadcast frequencies and limited access to 3G networks nationwide.

The Obama administrations support of net neutrality, however, is a shift in attitude that just might open access enough to encourage communication which will drive innovation and the exchange of ideas that the internet-age philosophers prophesied in the early days of the web.

Why are we so afraid of open and unbiased communications?

It's expensive. And it's not profitable in a short-term, privately held balance sheet kind of way.

But if we had a nickel for every new idea that arises from a free exchange, well, we'd probably be able to afford the infrastructure improvements that a non-tiered internet system will require. And then we'd really be rich.
