But if we VOTE HARDER - things will surely change! In the end, we either let the market do what it does unfettered, OR . . . we don't.

This will in the end yield allow a lot of stuff to bubble up to the top. Metaphorically speaking, this was the pebble that was allowed to hit the water. The ripple effect is unknown at this point. The biggest problem being is potentially WHO will be knocked off or throttled on the internet. the how, when and if unknown at this point. My guess is that the smaller ISP's will do nothing initially save for the mom and pop providers that are still out there. The real impact will be with the tier one providers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Century and Level 3) decide to do something. Virtually anything you do online will involve at least one of these companies unless you stay one hundred percent local. Even the local papers websites are not local to NW PA. (this site is hosted in Atlanta FYI)

There are a LOT of ways this could go and there is a possibility some good could come out of this. My view of this is not nearly as rosie as those to sold the idea the aforementioned politicians. We'll all see how this pays out and if we're lucky we'll still be talking on here. Nobody knows for sure at this point.
