Some disturbing news from the always wrong-headed FCC. It seems that they're siding with the phone companies in a decision to add on fees for Net access, thereby killing off the fairly level playing field that's thrived on the net and made this into an egalitarian utopia. Some details about that here: FCC Chief: AT&T Can Limit Net Bandwidth. Surely this will warm the hearts of multi-million dollar companies who can pony up the fees for access and not have to scratch their heads and wonder why novelty sites get more web hits than they do.
