Revelations from the Wall Street Journal probably don't belong in the category 'Affiliate Marketing Industry News', but as it's the only category with a 'news' section, here you go.
I'm not a particularly avid reader of the WSJ, but dropped by because of an article I was directed to from another forum. And while there, I noticed this little gem of a headline:
Google Wants It's Own Fast Track On The Web
Now, apparently she isn't the only one. And while the Internet has always been considered a level playing field for all of us, things could change pretty drastically if google and others get their way.
Talks of 'fast lanes' on the Internet for those who want (and can afford) them have been around for a while. But most people were against it, including Obama. And for good reason, if they start charging for delivering your content quicker, then those who can pay will do so, and those who can't afford it will be left clogging up the slow lanes.
One justification, "If everyone had to pay the same rates for postal service, than you wouldn't be able to differentiate between sending a greeting card to your grandma versus sending an overnight letter to your lawyer.""
Hmm. somehow I don't think the difference is going to be relative to the cost of sending a greeting card.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122929270127905065.html
