The Save the Internet movement suffered a loss in Washington Wednesday when a House committee failed to pass a measure that would have prevented the creation of a two-tier Web - one that consumer groups fear will benefit wealthy content providers at the expense of mom and pop sites.

The Save the Internet movement suffered a loss in Washington Wednesday when a House committee failed to pass a measure that would have prevented the creation of a two-tier Web - one that consumer groups fear will benefit wealthy content providers at the expense of mom and pop sites.

So why do they sound so happy on their Web site?

Because they feel they have momentum.

Hey Dan,

I for one am not happy.  I think progress can be measured in success, not a loss.

A step in the right direction is fine, but you have to run a marathon in order to win the race.  The problem we face is the race is rigged. When you combine money and politics, the regular guy will always come in last.
