Internet & Networking After an epic vote fail in the lower house yesterday (labour accidentally voted against net neutrality lolfail), which was rectified today, The Netherlands has officially become the second country in the world, and the first in Europe, to turn net neutrality into law (okay, technically it needs to pass the senate, but that's more of a formality in our system). A big middle finger to Sarkozy, Cameron, and Obama. Hey Chile, ./fistbump.sh. We're honoured to follow in your footsteps!

More good news: you're not at all forced to choose between moving to Chile or the Netherlands. These countries are just early in putting this into law and it's very well possible that other nations will follow in the future, maybe even sooner now.

Hmmm. I think it'd have to be Chile because Spanish is going to be way easier to learn than Dutch, plus Chile has some nice beaches.

Can someone post a link to the actual text of the legislation? Google-fu is failing me.
