Apparently in response to revelations that Comcast was disrupting BitTorrent traffic, several Internet and technology luminaries, including Dave Farber, Paul Saffo, Bruce Schneier, Peter Neumann, and Lauren Weinstein have created The NetNeutrality Squad. Their very worthwhile goals include:
The project's focus includes detection, analysis, and incident reporting of any anticompetitive, discriminatory, or other restrictive actions on the part of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) or affiliated entities, such as the blocking or disruptive manipulation of applications, protocols, transmissions, or bandwidth; or other similar behaviors not specifically requested by their customers.
Other key aspects of the project are discussions, technology development and deployment, and associated activities -- fostering cooperation and mutually agreeable methodologies whenever possible -- aimed at keeping the Internet a maximally unhindered, useful, competitive, fair, and open environment for the broadest possible range of applications and services.
Having saved the day in great superhero fashion, the Incredibles ends with a machine rising from underground and a character emerging who says the following:
Behold, the Underminer! I'm always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness! Soon, all will tremble before me!
Can't help but wondering if this was Comcast in a subtle cameo appearance.
