This is a pretty good primer but I think it does grossly overestimate the openness of the Internet WITH net neutrality. Money still dominates what gets seen, it would* just get a lot worse.
Plus Facebook and Google are so dominant, both in and of itself and as a business model, and net neutrality's been dead there (especially Facebook) for years already.
*Will, let's face it.
I was mostly referring to their "pay for exposure" setup, which is kind of like a tiny microcosm of what loss of net neutrality would do to the whole Internet.
This new move against net neutrality has an advantage that SOPA, PIPA, PROTECT-IP et al didn't have. It lacks a weakness that the others all had.
How the fuck are you supposed to mobilize people to rail against something that doesn't have a fucking name?
