dabid isenberg is one of my favourite bloggers, mostly because hsi knowledge comes from waaaay down. And I wholly go with his approach on network neutrality, so this is right in line: Bret Swanson on Structural Separation.
I used to be more in tune with the George Gilder camp when the separation of content and carriage was front and center. Gilder protégé Bret Swanson, writing in the Discovery Institute's technology blog, disses the idea of structural separation, sneering, "Too bad [Isenberg's] stupid network is no longer an ironic figure of speech."
It never was a figure of speech. It meant that the network did not have services or know what it was carrying! It just delivered the bits, stupid.
I just wondered whether that last comma should have been a colon. Then again, I could see why the frustration might have boiled over.
Doesn't it make a difference?
