Internet & Networking You know all that talk about net neutrality in the US? How for instance Verizon and Google want net neutrality to apply only to something they call the 'wired' internet, which is apparently somehow different from the 'mobile' internet? Well, while you Americans are only talking about it, us Dutch are once again way ahead of the curve: the largest of the three main carriers has announced its intention to start charging extra for services like VoIP, instant messaging, Facebook, and so on, with the other two carriers contemplating similar moves. The dark future of the web, right here in my glorified swamp.

If this moves to the USA, ssh won't help. The telecom companies will simply have the congress they paid good money for outlaw encrypted communications - either as DMCA II (gotta protect "intellectual property") or PATRIOT III (gotta stop those "terrorists" from hiding their nefarious schemes).

And then they'll add SSH connection to an extra package. Meet deep package inspection. Although the payload is encrypted, it's easy to detect SSH connections.
