The web's schizophrenic little brother ?

If you've wondered why I've started putting bracketed question marks in the middle of my sentences, click on one of them one of these days and you might answer your own question [?]. The question marks lead back to a Blockstackers project called "Everything2" which is essentially a community built, self-referencing outliner, idea-sharer, definition provider...thing...

Check it out, its pretty neat.

Indian ISPs Opposed to VoIP IM Traffic.

According to Wired, Indian ISPs are up in arms over IM applications that provide their (the ISPs) subscribers with VoIP [?] support. More astounding than the attitudes of the Internet Service Providers was the degree to which the Indian government seems to have (attempted or successfully - not sure) regulated the Internet in an extreme fashion running directly contrary to the end-to-end principle. "The application is dead, long live the telecoms".

Scott Tyler Shafer provides one great example of what India will be missing out on in the next 99% of the Internet's functions if the government keeps regulating in this direction.

Bizarre...two days of stories didn't make it to the main page of the blog (even though I diligently added them all and they showed up in my Home screen)...then, they disappeared even from there and are now completely lost. Weird.
