The Economist on the future of the internet

The Economist’s technology-related articles are always written and mindful of the audience, and this latest is well pitched indeed.  For the intelligent, interested but not all-knowing reader, this is a balanced view of the risks faced by the open internet that we have today.  The fact that it is a viewpoint from this side of the pond is refreshing.  Good on net neutrality – especially the idea that this would not be such a big issue if only the US had more competition in the telecoms market.  Well recommended.
