Just A Note

Vint Cerf, father of the internet--or at least TCP-IP, asks a good question:
"He said he also found it 'troublesome' that various states and localities have been proposing and implementing measures to outlaw municipally sponsored broadband networks. 'Why on Earth would we inhibit people from making their own investments--deciding, for example, to float a bond?' he asked."
Why? Well, mostly because of simple self-interest, of course. That explains our incumbents, anyway. Whining, sniveling losers. :-)
