Well, at least the Democrats will do something about Net Neutrality

Senator Dorgan is bragging on his new proposed Internet Freedom Preservation Act, co-sponsored by Senators Kerry, Boxer, Harkin, Leahy, Clinton, and Obama.

I'd have more confidence in a bill endorsed by Boucher and Goodlatte. I'm not sure that the celebrity politicians in the Senate are particularly reliable on any technical issues, including this one - but I will try to read the bill and see where it fits in.

Not everyone agrees on whether the new Congress is jumping on tech issues: today, I saw one headline that said Congress Off To Slow Start With Tech and another that said 110th US congress wastes no time on Net neutrality.
