FCC Fines Company for Blocking Access to VoIP

Tyriel Maybe Powell ain't so bad (294 comments)

The Yahoo Story on this (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=7 5&ncid=75&e=2&u=/nf/20050304/tc_nf/30927) has the following quote from Powell:

Regulators want to establish jurisdiction over VoIP services that are both interstate and international in nature, Powell says in a statement issued in October. "To hold that packets flying across...digital networks should be subject to state commission economic regulatory authority
is to dumb down the Internet to match the limited vision of government officials," he argues.
Whoa there Michael, you just said something that shows: A) insight for the fact that the Internet is more subtle than those in government, and B) disdain for the ability of government to properly regulate high technology Excuse me, would someone please call 911? I believe that doozy just about sent me into shock. Maybe there's hope for the man after all. -Steve
