I have spent the last two days at the Freedom to Connect conference sponsored by Isen.com and Pulver.com. It's an interesting conference every year. A friend describes it correctly as a combination seminar and revival meeting. There is a strong element of preaching to the converted. Almost without exception, the attendees support some form of net neutrality. The question is what is covered by "net neutrality" and whether it should be imposed by law or regulators, or left to market forces with possibly some after the fact enforcement by the FCC in particularly egregious situations.
I'm struck by the fact that even these propoents of net neutrality can't agree on what it is, or what is needed to ensure it. There's a surprising split on whether the FCC or Congress ought to enshrine some form of net neutrality principles into laws or regulations. There is a palpable distrust of both institutions, along with a healthy respect for the law of unintended consequences.
