He aha ka Neutrality Net?

I'm a fan of big business and I'm not much of a doomsday theorist; however, Net Neutrality is huge to me personally. My entire life and ability to support my children relies on my work's ability to use the Internet, my ability to use the Internet… and it's quickly becoming my childrens' as well. Dicing up the Internet with fast and slow lanes doesn't provide choice, it will truly just bury the slow lanes. That means that our ability, as bloggers and small business entrepreneurs, will disappear.

I believe that will result in less economic growth and will ultimately hurt our economy and, in turn, tax revenue. That's a pretty scary scenario and will change the balance of wealth and power that the Internet brings to the small voice – and put it back in the hands of those with money – just as it happened with newspapers, music, radio, and television.

You really shouldn't work on fixing things that not only aren't broken… but are changing the world we live in and opening new economies and businesses every second of the day.

Aia kekahi mea hoʻohenehene ma aneʻi pū kekahi. ʻO nā ʻoihana e like me akamai already help businesses to ‘speed up' their content delivery on the net:

Aia nā Akamai EdgePlatform ma kahi o 20,000 mau kikowaena i hoʻonohonoho ʻia ma nā ʻāina he 71 e nānā mau nei i ka Pūnaewele? ke kaʻa, nā wahi pilikia a me nā kūlana holoʻokoʻa. Hoʻohana mākou i kēlā ʻike e hoʻonui pono ai i nā ala a hoʻopili i nā ʻike no ka lawe wikiwiki ʻana, ʻoi aku ka hilinaʻi. E like me kā Akamai lawelawe ʻana i 20% o ka nui o ka holo pūnaewele i kēia lā, ʻo kā mākou ʻike i ka Pūnaewele ka laulā a me ka hōʻeuʻeu i hōʻiliʻili ʻia i nā wahi āpau.

We recently began using Akamai at our work and it's been double-digit improvements in our application's response around the world… in some places up to 80%. This is, of course, technology that is not affordable to small businesses; however, it's a business in and of itself. So not only do we not need these new ‘fast lanes', we already have solutions that assist big business in faster content delivery. So why are we still talking about this?

Kakau inoa i ka palapala noi a hāʻawi manawaleʻa i Mālama i ka Pūnaewele.

    Makemake nā poʻe nona nā ala nui o ka Pūnaewele e hana i ʻelua ala no ke kaʻa. Hoʻokahi ala (e like me kēia manawa) kahi pūnaewele pūnaewele maʻamau. Ala ʻē aʻe; Eia nō naʻe, hiki ke lilo i ala e hiki ai i nā kelepona ke hoʻopiʻi no ka wikiwiki, ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi o ka bandwith no ka uku ʻana i nā mea kūʻai aku.

    ʻO ka manaʻo ma hope o ia hiki i nā ʻoihana kūpono ke uku no ka hoʻomaikaʻi maikaʻi ʻana i kā lākou ʻike iā ʻoe a iaʻu paha. Ma kēia ʻano ʻaʻohe o lākou hopohopo e pili ana i ka loaʻa ʻana o ke kaʻa ma o ke kaʻa e kū nei. Inā ʻoe e kuʻi iā Google no kahi laʻana, a ke uku nei lākou no ka bandwidth i hoʻonui ʻia, hiki i kā lākou pūnaewele ke hoʻokau wikiwiki aku.

    Ma ka pepa, maikaʻi ke kani. Eia naʻe, he hopena paha ka hopena. ʻAʻohe mea hoʻonāukiuki no kēia mau ʻoihana e hoʻomaikaʻi i ka hana holoʻokoʻa a me nā hanana o ka Pūnaewele nāu a me aʻu. I ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, he ʻoiaʻiʻo nō ka ʻaoʻao ʻē. Inā lākou e hoʻokuʻu i nā ala 'maʻamau' o ka Pūnaewele i ka hana, e hoʻonui ia i nā ʻoihana hou no nā ala 'ʻoihana'.

    I kēia manawa, inā hoʻomaikaʻi ʻo Verizon a i ʻole AT&T a i ʻole Comcast i kā lākou pūnaewele a me ka bandwidth, a pau ʻike i ka hoʻomaikaʻi. ʻO ia ka 'kūlike ʻole' i Net Neutrality. Makemake nā poʻe e like me aʻu e mālama pēlā. Inā kūkulu kēia mau kāne i kahi ʻoi aku ka wikiwiki, ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi o ka pūnaewele āu e uku ai, ʻaʻole ʻoe a me aʻu ʻoihana. ʻAʻole pilikia nā poʻe e hele mai i kā mākou pūnaewele no ka mea lohi ia.

    I ke kumu o koʻu hopohopo, eia nō naʻe, ke hoʻopukapuka nui nei kēia mau ʻoihana i ka Pūnaewele - ʻaʻole lākou i hoʻokumu. ʻO ke kālā ʻauhau ʻauhau US ia i hōʻoki i ka pūnaewele mai ka honua ... ʻaʻole pono mākou e waiho ʻia ma hope.

    Ke hele nei i ka blog e pili ana. Mahalo 🙂

      Hiki iā ia ke hana ma nā wahi āpau, akā inā hiki ia i ka US, e hāwele maikaʻi nā hopena ma ʻō aku. E piʻi paha nā ʻoihana nui ʻē aʻe i ka kaʻa kaʻa pū, ʻoiai ʻo ia ka ʻoihana e kākoʻo i ka hiki i ka hapa nui o ka poʻe. Lʻil ol 'kamaaina e like me ʻoe a me aʻu e koi ʻia e fork i kahi kālā a haʻalele i ka lepo.
