Strange Allies

What do the Gun Owners of America and have in common? The same thing that unites Craigslist founder Craig Newmark with Google exec Vint Cerf. They’re all coming out in favor of Network Neutrality.

I’m all for competitive market solutions when they’re appropriate. Sometimes we all benefit more from some cooperation however, and the Internet is one example of these. The Internet thrives on having content be as universally accessible as possible. Private contractors build our highways, but allowing contractors to monetize or restrict the traffic flow simply because they built the roads would give them almost complete control over commerce and travel.

I hope you see the analogy that I just drew with a bold literary sharpie (trust me, you can’t miss it.) Inform yourself about Network Neutrality and why getting rid of it could be bad for business.
