A word or two more on “internet misrepresentation,” the movement I discussed in an earlier post. Some of the others involved who I want to mention are David P. Reed, who worked on the early internet, Dave Burstein who is the editor of the always-interesting DSL Prime, Gordon Cook, editor of the Cook Report, and Steve Wozinack, co-author of the original “breakout” among other project, and alot of other very interesting people.

I wanted to reiterate that one thing that isn't getting enough attention are problems of broadband transparency. Carriers really should be required to tell consumers and application designers what kind of bandwidth and latency they're getting — at least a good estimate, if its a shared network. The argument against such information disclosure is non-existent.
Its like ingredients in food, or required reporting for corporations. Information is what makes the market work.
