Poli-Sci: The Internets Then And Now

As you no doubt know, the whole kerfuffle over the so-called Net Neutrality is being brought about because of service providers not knowing how to make the most money they can from this resource that everyone uses.

I just came across this interesting little article from March 1995, done for the Association for Computing Machinery's on-line magazine. In it, the question of how exactly the service providers can control content is debated, and whether the internet can be made into a one-way vehicle, like televisions needing stations to provide content for your home consumption.

Worth a quick read.
