Net Neutrality Bleg

Tech stuff

So, I know there was a big decision yesterday, and it's supposed to be . . . bad? For . . . us? The Internet? Everyone? Yeah, obviously I haven't been following this story the way I should But I'm sure some of you have! Can anyone point me to a good summary of the issue and recent developments? Thanks!

If you like the idea of bidding on how fast people can access your blog, and paying large sums of money for premium speed, or else having a blog your readers can't actually get to, you're against Net Neutrality.

If you like the idea of accessing Knitty or Ravelry with the same speed as Amazon or Apple.com, or if you use high-bandwidth services like Skype or the electronic collection of the public library, you're for Net Neutrality.
