Maybe you read my entry about watching the Internet’s gatekeepers? It looks like some of what I suspected was going on is actually happening! Internet providers are interested in favoring their own offerings (or deteriorating those from their competitors).
Currently, on the Internet, all content is created equal. Under the provider’s suggestions that will change… possibly drastically.
This battle will pit SBC, Comcast and their brethren against Google, Yahoo!, EBay and the like. It’s a real 21st century battle of the titans.
This is, as they say, a developing story. Stay tuned.
