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.

How long before hackers, engineers and scientists create the Free Internet project, similar in ethos to Free Software?

It exists: http://corp.fon.com/en

Unfortunately, it's not non-profit, but its probably the best execution of this idea up to this point.
