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.

I like these things

I always like it when corporations tries to come up with good ideas, they always fail (see: DiVX (DVD rental system)). The only good ideas come from consumers and individual inventors, business is just made to produce it for anyone else that wants one.
Give it enough bad press and they'll back away.
Plus, there's too much class warfare going on in the US to make a pay-for-tiered service at least an ill-timed idea, if not ill conceived.

Indeed, necessity is the mother of invention not the other way around... which is why supply side proposals are fallacious in nature.
