Net Neutrality Somehow Finds its Way Into the Economic Stimulus Bill

Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on January 16, 2009 - 10:51am

This is not a political blog, but when politics and technology collide, we'll be there. CNET reported yesterday that the democrats attempted to place net-neutrality legislation deep within the $825 billion bill. Supporters of net neutrality have been extremely vocal about their desire for President-elect Obama and the new Congress to push for Net Neutrality legislation, and it looks like Congress may be starting to comply.

While the excitement surrounding the incoming administration and the urgency of our current economic problems will probably push this issue to the side (at least for now), I have no doubt that the blogosphere will be keeping a close eye on any new developments.
