A free and open Internet
You can watch Gary Cooper’s Farewell to Arms and a few more movies at Joost.com To those who may not be aware, Joost is another revolution from the entrepreneurs who have given us the Skype phone.
We don’t call the Internet “free” to imply that everything is “free of cost”, a free Internet means that it free for any one to communicate and share, free for anyone to create. These entrepreneurs did not have to wait for a Government approval or industry approval to start Joost, there were no clearances to be taken. Compare this freedom to what one has to go though to open a corner shop some where in a city, even in the free world.
What is more important, the Internet is neutral. I have asked Joost to show me this movie. Joost received my request without anyone in the middle intervening or altering my request to Joost. And Joost is sending me the movie, I am receiving it as sent, without distortion anywhere in the process.
As long as the Internet is “free” any one can launch another Wikipedia, another You Tube, Facebook or Skype.
We can think of a billion reasons to preserve the Internet as a free, open and neutral medium, as an un-fragmented, global, network of networks.
