If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.

The problem with this is twofold:

- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead

- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either

There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

There's nothing I could do on the ARPANET I can't do here.

What's lacking is a publicly-supported backbone which bans commercial activity.

And clear cost regulation, colocation, common carrier, peering, and transparency rules for commercial ISP's and telcos.

Like we had immediately after the Modified Final Judgement against ATT, which led to the dotcom boom.
