Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

The idea of Net Neutrality is to provide a free market where any entrant can have a fair chance of competition. It is the natural state of the Internet and a primary reason it's grown as it has when other networks have gone nowhere. Removing neutrality is what enables the distorted market by big layers and anti-competitive resistance to new entrants.
