Internet is being Remodelled & Destroyed in 2012

06/01/2008 - Every significant Internet provider around the globe is currently in talks with access and content providers to transform the internet into a television-like medium: no more freedom, you pay for a small commercial package of sites you can visit and you'll have to pay for seperate subscriptions for every site that's not in the package.

Almost all smaller websites/services will disappear over time and multinationals who are used to using big budgets to brute force their content into every media outlet will finally be able to approach the internet in the same way.

This well-known illustration of why we need net neutrality turns out to be very close to the truth at the bottom of this blog:

What can we do?

Internet providers have realized that the only way to not lose massive amounts of customers over this is to make sure there are no alternatives, that's why all major Internet providers are currently making agreements and planning to switch simultaneously somewhere in the year 2012. This is currently all going on under very strict NDA's (Non-Disclosure Agreements) because the last thing they want is the masses speaking out against it.

It's our responsibility to spread the word, use any sort of political or media contacts you may know. The more awareness there is, the more impossible it'll be for Internet providers to make this switch. Let's make sure that by 2012, ISP's won't even dare think about doing anything that goes against the principles of net neutrality.

More info...

Net neutrality has been a much debated issue for several years now and there have been many lawsuits in cases where an Internet provider blocked access to a certain competitor's site or simply crippled download speeds on services that they felt were using up too much of their bandwidth. But this new information that has now been confirmed by inside sources from major ISP's and content providers gives us a far bleaker vision of what the future of Internet freedom will look like if we don't take action in every way we can.

Why is this happening? The entire media and marketing industry is losing its grip on the upcoming generations of Internet-minded consumers. Statistics show that traditional media is losing popularity as the Internet continues to grow drastically every year. And the Internet is a completely different place: consumers aren't passive any more and advertisements don't have the same psychological effect they normally have on television. Internet users are very active and focused: they only go to the sites and services they want, and with an infinite amount of alternatives, users simply switch to something else if one service becomes too commercialized with annoying advertisements.With this in mind, it's no surprise that the past 6 years the industry has secretly been planning a 'take-over' to secure the Internet as a purely commercial playground.

Spread The Word

But there is hope... More and more people are becoming aware of the importance of net neutrality and now that we have uncovered what the industries have been plotting, it's not just about big corporations forming shady agreements, it's about what they will say to their users who will demand an explanation from their providers on what will happen to their access in 2012. As long as there are alternatives, we can pressure those providers who admit to being against net neutrality and favor those who take a stand and choose to give their users their freedom even after 2012. We can keep pushing for net neutrality laws and we can start spreading awareness on a massive scale to make sure that ISP's think twice before signing anything that'll go against the freedom that made the Internet into the important open medium that it is today.

It's our responsibility, spread the word and use any sort of political or media contacts you may know. Let's make sure that by 2012, ISP's won't even dare think about doing anything that goes against the principles of net neutrality.

Well, imagine that I keep coming through your house to get to my work because it's a short cut. Sometimes I bring my friends, sometimes I bring all my co-workers back. You don't want to charge because I'm your friend, but eventually we are all damaging your house... So you charge, or you stop general people accessing your house and restrict it to just priviledged users.

Your childish "Fail" belies little knowledge in the business economics of the situation. I have no idea what Virgin is really doing, but if it's not them, it's another company. Pick a cause and support it, but try and do it with intelligence, not caustic remarks.

Double-Fail.

Never knew Virgin was an ISP...

Oddler responds:

Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 18 July 1950) is an English entrepreneur, best known for his Virgin brand of over 360 companies. Branson's first successful business venture was at age 15, when he published a magazine called Student. He then set up a record mail-order business in 1970. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores and rebranded as zavvi in late 2007. With his flamboyant and competitive style, Branson's Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s - as he set up Virgin Atlantic Airways and expanded the Virgin Records music label. Richard Branson is the 236th richest person according to Forbes' 2008 list of billionaires as he has an estimated net worth of approximately $7.9 billion USD.

Virgin is everything. One of the few companies that can branch out to almost anything they want. Interesting factoid. Don't let this ambitious company destroy the internet!!!!

itll never happen. when microsoft tried to force everyone to use ie the government saw dollar signs and sued for monopoly. if virgin tries the same thing every government on earth will see dollar signs and sue richard branson for billions and then virgin wont be able to even control a simple home pc let alone servers. but good luck to them on trying it i love seeing car wreckes like that.

Sometimes they succeed and it's silly to just hope for the best.

Good sir...

I have heard of this Internet Devestation. It is quite ridiculous. I hear that if you say own a small website or forum, you will have to BUY it. Then you will still have to pay to visit it! I honestly watched that video AND read the text you wrote, and I find it saddening. The interent has been free since it was first invented! What might this do to our economy! If people want to change the internet into a TV channel, then there is no reason for the internet. I shall do my part and spread the word AS BEST I CAN. Im a respected member of many places, people will listen to me. I promise to help.

Thank you for notifing me.

Well, in order to be fully equipped first we must be well trained and second, we must wear Kelvar Vests and get HEs, Flashbangs and Smog Grenades/Satchel, C4s and Other Explosives!

Oddler responds:

Ok...you handle getting that and I'll bring the Kool-Aide for us to drink while we get to their headquarters....deal?

For students who are registering a new personal folder under a school/district subscription, Personal IDs are no longer required to be unique to the entire NoodleTools community. They need only be unique to that subscriber (the school/district). This should make it a lot easier to create a personal folder with an ID that the student will remember. And administrators creating batches of student folders via the administrative interface shouldn't run into the problem of student ID numbers that overlap with other schools.

lmao, that interview was pointless. I read exactly what they were saying, in a much clearer, much easier to understand 500 word report on a news site. I'm totally supporting the cause, but do they really think that people need this their video message to know what is right and wrong? Don't treat people like they're so naive.

Also, are they from the 70's? Check those sick haircuts man, lolz :)

Oddler responds:

Yes, the video was shot in the 70s.

Hey, you left a message on my userpage asking about the shadows. All I did was use one normal shadow filter at about 50% strength, and another shadow filter at 25% strength, with the inner shadow box checked.

Simple as!

Thanks for the compliment! :)
