Three Possible Network Future Scenarios
"These are first drafts of three possible network futures, prepared for discussion at the Networked Publics Conference (Annenberg Center for Communication, April 28-29, 2006.) They were meant to stimulate debate during the conference.
Scenario 1: NeutralNet
What could happen if congress passed a network neutrality law?
Scenario 2: TCNOtopia
What if Telcos and Cable companies were in complete control of the networks' future?
Scenario 3: Automata
What if ad-hoc, self-organizing mesh networks were all we needed to communicate?" (http://www-rcf.usc.edu/%7Efbar/netfutures.html)
