Net Neutrality? That horse left the barn, got on a boat and went to Europe long ago.DeWayne Hendricks, speaking at F2C

DeWayne is leaving the country. Going offshore. Because he’s giving up on geeks here in the U.S. We’re not fighting for the Net, he says. And we need to.

A link: ipsphere.org. Somebody on the show chat says it was…

  …created to describe services, it’s origins were that carriers were more interested in addressing what services are required than a more typical IETF approach of what capabilities do the protocols and equipment provide: one is more proscriptive and controlling. Do need QoS and security, and need to work with the industry on how to achieve while maintaining the Internet’s ubiquity. IPSphere Forum seems to be trying to establish itself as a profit and carrier-friendly version of the IETF, but without the basic protocol work.

    Hey Doc,

    We here in Brazil are mad about ISO’s approval of Microsoft’s OOXML. We know the arguments for it, but it is difficult to swallow the methods used to reach the decision. Can we say that the US approach on the issue is a sign that another horse called ‘public standards’ was also on that boat to Europe. I’d love to hear you on that.

    Greetings from a Brazilian fan.
