There's an interesting website, worldofends.com
that explains what Internet is meant to be like. (thanks to @jeffcliff for pointing me to it)

It claims that the corpos and govts that are trying to appropriate the Internet are making a mistake.
Not that they're evil, but that they're mistaken.
As I understand it, it implies that such behaviour doesn't benefit those companies.
That they can't just turn the internet into another TV network and suck money out of the people.
But... why?

I mean, what's stopping these companies from doing just that?
Why can't they make profit by destroing the internet and turning it into a machine for spraying advertisements at eyeballs?
