It occurs to me only now that when Andrew and I get together to record episodes of BlissVille Fridays, we tend to use a lot of harsh language. I don’t mean our attitudes and respective behaviors are cutting, or bizarre and bitter, but that we use adult language; lots of F-Bombs, and C-Words. I don’t know why except to say Andrew brings out the sailor in me.
If you’re offended by harsh language, you might not want to listen to these episodes. Just a little warning.
Net neutrality (also network neutrality, Internet neutrality, or net equality) is the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.
There has been extensive debate about whether net neutrality should be required by law, particularly in the United States. Debate over the issue of net neutrality predates the coining of the term. Advocates of net neutrality such as Lawrence Lessig have raised concerns about the ability of broadband providers to use their last mile infrastructure to block Internet applications and content (e.g. websites, services, and protocols), and even to block out competitors.
