MC show & Save The INternet

One of our recent shows – the last ever with Joe – is here. It’s pretty good IMHO, though it starts out a little slow.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it’s a little scary to think of the broadband providers ganging up in a pack to perform acts of censorship and tax each individual packet. On the other hand, if they do that, we’ll just build a new internet without them, using all kinds of tricky amatuar techniques that will annoy the *#*% out of the censors, as well as make it much, much harder for the government to track our activities. I’m kind of suprised we haven’t already done this.

And, you might almost say that by definition, it’s the right of every network provider to choose what data they allow to travel through their networks – it’s just not very implimentable yet.

    The link in the sentence “I’m not sure how I feel about this.” doesn’t work… FYI.

    I’m hoping one of them will try and charge Google for packets, and Google will fire up all that dark fiber it’s been buying over the years and route around the idiots. Wide-band wireless, tor routing, everything encrypted: AT&T can probably force their business plan to work for another couple of years but unless they get some astoundingly effective legislation passed they’re doomed.
