I did a podcast with the folks at The Technology Liberation Front on Google’s edge-caching system:
This week we saw a new kerfuffle of sorts develop over the revelation in a Monday front-page Wall Street Journal story that Google had approached major cable and phone companies and supposedly proposed to create a fast lane for its own content. What exactly is it that Google is proposing, and does it mean â€“ as the Wall Street Journal and some others have suggested â€“ that Google is somehow going back on their support for Net neutrality principles and regulation? More importantly, what does it all mean for the future of the Internet, network management, and consumers. Thatâ€™s what we discussed on the TLFâ€™s latest â€œTech Policy Weeklyâ€ podcast.
Google’s genius at creating a citizen’s movement to boost their bottom line needs more praise, but this is a start.
