Actually yes we should, because all of these shiny "fiber for everyone" infrastructure actually _originate_ in over-involvement of the government in the internet policies. One comes with the other. It's good sometimes to point out the flip side of the coin.

After all the whining that's been going on for ten years about ISPs in the US, the fact is that we still have the most innovative, free as in speech internet.

Let them have online gaming as a national pastime, and let's keep the worldwide online media stores, let's keep setting standards, directions and initiatives for digital content, social applications and mobile OSs.
