[TIPS] Declaration of Independance - for the internet

Thanks to Tim at AssortedStuff for this post (http://www.assortedstuff.com/?p=2087) that points to this post: http://www.hyperorg.com/misc/delamination.html by David Weinberger. David is commenting on the dangerous way that the Internet is heading. He does a much better job than I could do in summarizing it, so I'll let you read it. Read Tim's post for the summary, but read the real thing for an interesting view of the argument over Net Neutrality.
 
I might point out that this site: http://reclaimthemedia.org/media_literacy_bias/censored2006 lists Net Neutrality as the top most censored story in 2005-2006.
"For 30 years, Sonoma State University's Project Censored has released an annual list of the most important news stories not covered by the corporate media in the United States. Here again are the Top 10 news stories that didn't make much news."
 
You might want to also see what they list as the other nine most censored stories. Whether you agree with the list or not it's interesting reading.
