Net Neutrality or Swiss Cheese?

MP900442570 By now, you've probably heard that the FCC adopted new 'Net Neutrality' rules earlier this week.  I combed copious pieces on the issue, looking for one that would best examine the background of how this all came about and I feel that this article, written by David Goldman for CNNMoney.com, did the trick.

What I also learned is, there's absolutely no consensus regarding whether this is a good thing or a bad thing.  It all depends on who you ask (or read).  Of course, it depends heavily on which dog one has in this particular hunt, but there's no one-size-fits-all solution to this issue.  If you'd like to examine another opinion on the possible winners & losers, here you go.

My view?  It's way too early to make an attempt at in-depth analysis.  Why?  Any lawyer will tell you; it's not what the rules say, it's how they're interpreted and implemented.  So, I'd rather let this develop a little further, then re-visit.

In the meantime, fondu, anyone?
