[ NNSquad ] Emanuel Haldeman-Julius' "Little Blue Books" as a Net Neutrality (and Privacy) Parable?
Emanuel Haldeman-Julius' "Little Blue Books" as Net Neutrality (and Privacy) Parable? A reader just pointed me at this excellent write-up about a 1920s-era publisher -- now nearly forgotten and perhaps unknown to most of you -- whose efforts can be interpreted as eerily presaging the sorts of battles that are likely in our future if ISPs are permitted to become the largely unregulated arbiters of Internet priorities and content, particularly when "sensitive" or unpopular contents are involved. Very much worth reading -- and pondering.
