Net Neutrality concerns
network provider's potential to prioritize certain types of traffic, such as
Voice Over IP and online gaming, over that from large content providers.
Opponents contend this is not in the spirit of the Internet where all services
should be managed equally. A panel representing content providers, Internet
Service Providers, telecommunications companies, and entrepreneurs will
explore the impacts of the two major legislative proposals for Net Neutrality.
Panelists Scheduled to Appear:
John Quarterman, CEO of Internet Perils
John co-founded one of the first
commercial ISPs in Austin, Zilker Internet Park, and is currently CEO of
InternetPerils, Inc., which
provides automated Internet business risk management intelligence.
