It has been a long time coming, but the FCC finally managed to bring a set of general rules for managing how the Internet can and can't be used in the U.S. To the right-wing free market corporate-types, the mere fact that a government agency could presume to have a say in how a private service like Internet access is sold is heresy. To the left-wing free-Web purists, the fact that these rules are not laws, have loopholes you could drive a truck through, and still allow ISPs to throttle Internet access, is a high crime. In other words, it is a compromise. But I think it is one I can live with, at least for now.
