Getting Rid Of Sidewalk Neutrality
from the analogies-are-fun dept
It’s true that network neutrality is a complex issue — which often leads people to various analogies to try to make it clearer. Some come across as silly, such as the series of tubes, and some are a lot more interesting. Bob Frankston is getting some attention today for his re-imagining of the network neutrality debate if it were about sidewalks instead of the internet. As others are noting, it helps highlight why congestion isn’t really the issue. It is, once again, about protecting a business model, not about increasing innovation to make their own networks more valuable.
