Net neutrality will eventually die, wont it? As I see it they'll keep trying to take it down over and over endlessly until people get tired of fighting it and they win.

Indeed, it has its days numbered. It's just a matter of time.

That's how it goes with everything. They have all the time and money in the world and they will salami and redo everything over and over until shit normalizes and goes through.
I don't know words strong enough to describe how disgusting and horrible this normalfag world is.
We're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine, but the machine isn't bleeding to death- we are.

The internet was a nice thing. Normalfags turned it into shit. Now other normalfags will it worse. Serves those cunts right. People complain about this killing small sites and businesses, but those same people likely only buy their shit from amazon anyway. They don't really give a shit about all the small sites and businesses that will be hurt, to them the internet is just a facebook youtube and reddit machine. If anyone really cared there would be riots on the streets. Instead you've got hipsters winning about paying an extra $5 a month for twitter on their $1000 iphones. Fuck those faggots. I long for the day when every nerd had their own webspace, when there were limitless things to explore and learn about on the endless sea of the net. We'll never have that again, but at least I can watch normalfags burn in the house they kicked us out of.

The way I see it, the big money maker, along with the biggest hog of bandwith are streaming sites like netflix, hulu, amazon video, etc. If internet plan segmentation happens, it's going to be for access to these types of sites. I would gladly pay for a lower tier of internet plan, that costs less, that doesn't allow access to these sites.

Stop mega-corps from enabling the masses. Break up Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple.

amazon & fb are pretty easy to avoid, google is harder because they own youtube (ms & apple) try buying a laptop without an OS from one of them installed. that article was dumb because microsoft owns nokia
>> No. 1800 [Edit]
Google isn’t hard to avoid at all, not if you harden your browser and use StartPage.

As bad as amazon may be, the alternatives are few and many of them are equally if not worse from that perspective.

There really isn't a viable alternative to google.

There are certain things that other search engines do better, the closest you get is a supposedly anonymous pass-through to google in many cases (duckduckgo). For email they are leagues better than any alternative from their cyber security alone, and comes with a lot more usability with almost a guarantee that the servers won't be shut down with all mail for all users lost (e.g. lavabit).

There are also the other tools that google provides (the in-browser office suite, maps, etc.) that are quite challenging to find useful alternatives with the same amount of accessibility and usefulness.
When it comes to things like google maps, using most of the "alternatives" just means passing your information to a 3rd party group AND to google, vice just giving it to google alone.

Amazon barely even functions properly where I live and I get by just fine. What do you even buy from there that you can't get elsewhere?
>> No. 1803 [Edit]
amazon is in everything, they own grocery stores now. its not just ordering book or shit you have to do to avoid their web, amazon is a major content host so they can do data profiling shit on you when you're using seemingly unrelated websites.
>> No. 1804 [Edit]
Can't you use script/flag blockers to block out amazon on those seemingly unrelated sites?
>> No. 1806 [Edit]
StartPage? Protonmail? Any map site that uses OpenStreetMap

Honestly, if the internet was to just shut down one day, I probably wouldn't bat an eyelash. Sure I'll miss it, but the positive effects such an event will outweigh the negatives. The internet in recent years has become nothing more than a circlejerk of narcissism, bullying, and shitflinging. Seeing all of this increase in the past couple of years has done nothing but fill me with me with an ever growing amount of hate that is obviously not healthy for any human being. I remember when the internet used to be fun, but with the increasing use of social media, causing the internet to merge with real life, it has become almost unbearable. We desperately need a reset, and I honestly hope this growing counterculture movement of neo luddites achieve some of their goals.
Sorry for the rant, just needed to get that off of my chest.
>> No. 1836 [Edit]
The internet is still a huge tool besides social media. If that were to happen many lives would even be lost.

Then maybe we shouldn't depend 100% on faulty technology.
>> No. 1847 [Edit]
Every single chan with a tech or g board is filled to the brim with political threads about policies, corporate/government spying and muh freedoms. I get why people care about these things, but there's a lot of more intersting things to talk about. These discussions always go the exact same every time.
>> No. 1857 [Edit]
Apparently a couple of tech boards are now focused on creating their own internet now that this one is being fucked over. Should be interesting.
>> No. 1858 [Edit]
isn't that just tor?
>> No. 1860 [Edit]
Whatever a tech board can come up with will be small-scale shit which they might use on the side to feel cool and above the system, but will never replace the current infrastructure. It's happened before. There is an interesting project called safenet, but whenever that actually becomes open the public is a mystery.

Also, tor isn't a "separate internet". Unless you make a new network of individual computers, you aren't making a "new internet". If you do that though, it wont be useful to people outside of that mesh network.
