Hi everybody on the list !
Sorry about the off-topic message, but giving the nature of the message and the nature of the list (after all, everybody here uses Internet or develops for web in some way), I decided to post this here and see what you guys think about it.
To quote the article (so you know if it interests you or not):
"Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet."
It is important to note that, although the article mentions Bell Canada, it is not that hard to imagine that this will eventually be expanded to all big ISPs.
Thanks and again, I apologize for this off-topic message !
