Network neutrality D-Day tomorrow

You might have read my post Web inventor warns of ‘dark’ net previously in which Sir Tim Berners-Lee warns of the dangers of the web getting "gatekeepers". It's an important post and it points to this BBC article Web inventor warns of 'dark' net as the source.

Robert Scoble has blogged Key network neutrality bill up for vote tomorrow

We're expecting the U.S. House of Representitives will vote on the Markey-Boucher-Eschoo-Inslee network neutrality amendment tomorrow or Thursday. I strongly support this amendment. It is gonna really be nasty if bandwidth companies can block or charge different rates to different internet players.

This is an important issue. The ramifications are significant.
