Glad to see this from Europe....
I hope that our Friends at the FCC actually listen to what Europe is doing on Net Neutraility.  I made it a point of sharing my concerns with the FCC..and I did get a "response"--whether it is "hot air" remains to be seen:

Thank you very much for the input you provided into the public record of our ongoing Open Internet proceeding.

As of 11:59pm on September 15, 2014, the comment cycle of this proceeding is now closed. I'm very glad that the record will include your thoughts and opinions—along with those of others from all over the country—in what has become the most commented FCC proceeding in history.

I am a strong supporter of the Open Internet, and I will fight to keep the internet open. Thanks once more for sharing your views.

Is this all about the streaming?
For most websites and Apps, the amount of data transferred is trivial right?  Even gaming sends ASCII streams of numbers.

So we're mostly talking about who is paying for the pipes to transport streaming video, correct?   I'd say that in that case, neutrality doesn't really have a good argument to make.

It's one thing to say someone's edge political site, full of black and white text screeds, should be equally accessible to all without blocking.  It seems like another that a private entity can stuff gigabits of content down and optical fiber without bearing any of associated costs.

In this case, establishing "neutrality" seems to be the opposite of what is being argued.

Re: Do re mi
Maybe my chaise is not longue enough. For the record, I'm ok with keeping things in the major keys.

Re: Do re mi
Well Dennis, I did advise you to recline on your chaise longue. The clues were there.

Maybe the 12-inch remix will be more up your alley.

Data sonification -- I expected something a little more 12-toney. And faster. Much, much faster.
