The End of the Internet?

Normally I would pass this off as fear mongering on the part of the press, but after hearing Verizon's CEO Ivan Seidenberg support it at Harvard Business School, I'm beginning to believe that we should be taking "Net Neutrality" seriously. CNN has a good summary of what it all means in layman's terms. From the article, "What if the Internet were like cable television, with Web sites grouped like channels into either basic or premium offerings? What if a few big companies decided which sites loaded quickly and which ones slowly, or not at all, on your computer?"
