Net Neutrality...

The OP-ED "Beware the New New Thing" on April 5, 2008 in NYT by Damian Kulash Jr. - lead singer of OK GO - one of the most visited videos on Google's Youtube - raised an immediate concern. I am sure there would be thousands of people, like me, perturbed on the notion of internet being manipulated.
Fortunately, I have always had the pleasure of a free uncensored media consumption in India ...the mere thought that I would not have access to some websites on my free will gives me jitters.

Imagine - waking up in the morning and trying to google some information on vital project but you get an error of not authorized to access the information since the ISP or the company providing you internet does not have a tie up with the website...what duh man!!! Its like to go to a friend's place who gets Tata Sky to watch a match between India vs Pakistan just because the channel is only coming on Tata Sky and not on Dish TV...

Lets hope and pray net remains neutral so that our lives can thrive...
