So, it turns out that maybe (just maybe) the concept of Net Neutrality was actually a good one. And maybe (just maybe) it would have benefited the ISP’s as well. And maybe (probably) we are going to witness a hilarious walk back in policies as major ISP’s try and get the FCC to stop this boulder they’ve pushed down the mountain. Who knew?!
Also, people are really stupid about which information they’re ok with sharing and when they decide to actually freak out about it: Facebook telling people in the immediate vicinity where I am and what I’m doing and who I’m with? That’s convenience. Microsoft asking my PC which model of CPU I have so it can track performance and vulnerabilities? MAJOR BREACH OF PRIVACY!
