You are — yes.
As to your abridged response: hehe, yes it would be snappier, but I feel that one of the thrusts of your article is “we don’t need no more snappy answers, thanks”.
I would like to see some debate on “what if we paid for internet stuff (in cash), and how much would it cost us?”. Alongside with some thinking on what would be the pros and cons of changing the dynamic of how these companies are funded.
Keep up the good work!
