Internet & Networking So, while The Netherlands just adopted net neutrality, the US is now nearing a comprehensive agreement on a piracy crackdown system. It will include throttling internet speeds, limiting access to e.g. only the top 200 websites, and forced participation in an educational program on copyright. The system has been drafted by the White House, big content, and ISPs. I guess this is the final nail in the coffin for net neutrality in the land of the 'free'.

Seriously, what is going on?! I feel like every day I wake up to find out that the US gov't is finding new and innovative ways to screw us. I'm at a loss for word so let me just end with a quote:

When the government fears the people, there is liberty; when the people fear the goventment, there is tyranny. -- Thomas Jefferson
