Thanks for this. I hadn't seen it yet.

I'm all for what Motherboard and VICE are contemplating. It's a great option, and may create an interesting opportunity for wireless mobile, too. But that's far more complex to fund and maintain than constructing an overlay over an already subscribable infrastructure. I wish them well, and I hope that the key idea of maximizing interoperability of all functions (including paying for upstream capacity) will be front and center in their minds. Balkanization of the subnets of the public Internet is a big worry - boundaries will destroy the Internet as effectively as content selectivity and content-based rate limiting will.
