Farewell to Free Internet?: "Yesterday's Federal Communications Commission ruling on net neutrality shifts billions in profits and means there will soon be a fast Internet for the rich and a slow one for the poor, says Dan Lyons. 'We are going from Phase One, where everything is free and open and untamed, into Phase Two, which is all about centralization, consolidation, control — and money.' 'We are entering an age in which we will have two Internets — the fast one, with great content, that costs more (maybe a lot more) to use, and then the MuggleNet, which is free but slow and crappy.'"
