Slashdot has recently started posting a lot on news concerning the telecom carriers, and their plot to lock down the internet so they can make as much money as possible.
first they want to charge by port number [Link]
Now they want to charge individual companies for the "privilege" of faster load times.[Link]
Right now the load time is handled by the amount of bandwidth that they pay for. But under this new plan Bell South wants to charge extra for "priority". This is what the internet as a business is going to, toll charges for everything.

A packet is a packet. Get off my back.

These companies are really starting to push their luck . . .

It makes me glad when I see projects like;

wetnet
WCN(Wireless Community Networks)
Metrix Comm
NoCat
Personal Telco
Wireless Commons Manifesto

A lot of these projects begin to remind me of the first 20 - 30 years of HAM operators . . . People using technology to support the community (instead of taking from the community).
