One thought on “what is the net?”

  1. Oh yeah, read this the other day. I think the good thing is that people are starting to realise this. I think the most important points made is that the internet is not television and it is not owned by a company.

    It gives me an interesting perspective on the marketing techniques of used by certain ISPs, particularly the ever declining AOL who’s adverts cycnically mislead newbies into thinking that you can only do things like IM if you use them, and actually use the term channels. I think the decline could be due to the fact that people are becoming more net savvy and realising that ISP choice has nothing to do with content provision and everything to do with value, connection reliability and uptime.
