    I am not an extremist on Net Neutrality, but I expect that the majority of the public feels the same way that I do: I would rather that I decide how my pipe is used than to have corporations partnering to favor one thing over another.

    This video seems to be Qwest and the other ISPs working on developing the language to talk about Net Neutrality without talking about Net Neutrality. A "Two-sided business model" means a way for them to make money from both sides of their pipe. I am not convinced that they have our best interests in mind. What would the response be? Paging George Lakoff!
