Internet & Networking

Every year, the internet gets a little less fair. The corporations that run it get a little bigger, their power grows more concentrated, and a bit of their idealism gives way to ruthless pragmatism.

And if Ajit Pai, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, gets his way, the hegemons are likely to grow only larger and more powerful.

This column is nominally about network neutrality, the often sleep-inducing debate about the rules that broadband companies like Comcast and AT&T must follow when managing their networks. But really, this is a story about ballooning corporate power.

John Oliver has a great video about the fight for net neutrality in the United States, and set up a website that makes it easy to send comments to the FCC to compel them to maintain net neutrality.

Your link to the gofccyourself site in chrome is sending users to osnews... it does not like that you left off http. You have: www.gofccyourself.com and not http://www.gofccyourself.com.

This makes the link go to http://www.osnews.com/www.gofccyourself.com in Chrome/Chromium/Firefox.
