In many ways this story is far field from our contemporary debates about network management, file sharing, and the perils of protocol discrimination. But the main questions seem to remain the same—to what degree will we let Western Union then and ISPs now pick winners and losers on our communications backbone? And when do government regulations grow so onerous that they discourage network investment and innovation?

These are tough questions, but the horrific problems of the "Victorian Internet" suggest that government overreach isn't the only thing to fear. In 1876, laissez-faire "freedom for all" meant (in practice) the freedom for Henry Nash Smith to read your telegrams if he didn't like who you supported for President. It meant freedom for Associated Press to block criticism of Western Union, and even to put potential critics and competitors out of business. And it meant freedom for a scoundrel to hijack the system at his leisure.

"the Mississippi policy issue has me thinking. Is it inappropriate for teachers and students to communicate via Facebook or MySpace? From my own experience, I conclude that it is acceptable for me to communicate with students as long as certain conditions are met:

* That communication is honorable, appropriate, respectful, and in good taste.
* That communication has some educational value.
* That communication is age-appropriate.
* That communication does not get too personal so as to make either the sender or receiver feel uncomfortable.
* That communication does not invade a person’s privacy.
* That the communication in Facebook stays in Facebook."

.. says Keith Hampton "We're all social animals. We want to communicate with those around us. And the BlackBerry is just one of many types of communication that help facilitate that."
