from Doc Searls:

Doc is one of those guys I enjoy listening to or reading
when it comes to tech, the internet and the future. It looks like he
spent quite a bit of time on this article about the telecoms, the cable
companies and the future of the net as we know it. It will take some
time to read and a bit longer to digest, but if you think that Web 2.0/
Free Culture and some of the other wonderful things we talk about are
going to be a slam dunk, be ready to fight for the future.

Saving the Net from the pipeholders.
