About this product
- DescriptionIn The Illusion of Net Neutrality, coauthors Bob Zelnick and his daughter Eva Zelnick sound the alarm on how the ever-increasing threat of regulations, rules, and powerful competing interests could strip the Internet of its unfettered, open nature-the very framework that has allowed it to become a life-altering invention. In just two short decades, this powerful global information and retail powerhouse has changed the way we communicate, how we stay informed on national and world events, how we manage our health and finances, and how we research virtually any subject-from genealogy to astrology. In their riveting, cautionary treatise, the Zelnicks clearly and simply outline the techlogies and factors that allowed the Internet to evolve and to become such a society-changing force in such a short period of time. They also carefully lay out the imminent threats that could rob the Internet of its full potential. They expose network neutrality for what is truly is, explain how FCC regulations would harm the Internet, and, in the end, make a strong, compelling case for an inndependent, unregulated Internet.
- Author BiographyBob Zelnick is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor of national and international a airs at Boston University, and, as a former longtime ABC News correspondent, a frequent television analyst.
