What exactly is Net Neutrality? You can watch a short (2 minute) video explaining the problem over on my other blog, then come back here. I’ll be waiting for you.

(Still waiting)

Now imagine that video taking a couple minutes to load. That’s a good example of the problem.

This is a problem for all of us, not just bloggers looking to find an audience or spread their ideas. By rewarding the sites that can afford to pay fees to the telcoms/ISPs, we discourage the spread of information from the individual and prevent future innovation by putting the burden on the upstart. We’re talking about a fundamental shift on what makes the net so great – free and open communication.
